We need to maximise each median in order to have the overall maximum median possible.
The highest possible median is 50 as they should be 5 numbers higher than the median in the group of 11. So, if we have a set that has a, b, c, d, e, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, the median will be 50. In this set, it is best not to waste any high values on a, b, c, d or e as these do not affect the median. So, a set that reads as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55 will also have median 50.
The next set can be 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49. The median will be 44.
The medians of the 5 groups can be 50, 44, 38, 32, 26. The highest possible average of the medians will be 38.
Correct Answer: 38
