The fastest and most reliable way to answer this question is by using GDC(Graphic Display Calculator).

All GDCs has a function that calculates the median of a number list.

For example, the commands for Casio FX-9860G II to calculate the median of a number list are:
MENU>STAT>insert the number in List 1>CALC(F2)>1VAR(F1) and get that the Med=5.

Therefore the correct answer is (B).

Hope these help!!:)
