comment Usage of the phrase “couldn't help myself”
@FumbleFingers But if I just did something, for eg text someone, then I can use it right "I couldn't help myself from text you", I mean to say something which was done just right now

comment Usage of the word “insert”
@AndrewLeach You don't know how many books like this one I've teared down the one from which I am asking questions, sometimes I get headaches looking at such terrible material where the reasons given for answers are not at all in line with the question or the context(mostly with reading comprehensions) :)

@PeterShor I guess mean being written as 5 is the only explanation then

comment Mean or Median?
@Jay sorry but I was not arguing actually I was too hung up on the fact that there should be a grammatical error not a mathematical one, but I guess that's the case :)

comment Mean or Median?
@PeterShor that whether mean being used here is correct usage or not, check out the link in more sources where it says, median should be used for skewed data instead of mean

comment Mean or Median?
@MattЭллен But why would an English book consider something mathematically wrong as wrong, its like a semantic error in programming, it doesn't do what it is supposed to do but "syntactically" according to the language it is correct. In the same way, writing 6 is semantically or mathematically wrong, but where English usage is concerned, it is correct or is it according to what the link says?
