Here, we can see that 7 occurred most frequently.
Hence, Mode = 7

Question 2. Find out the mode from the following data :
125, 175, 225, 125, 225, 175, 325, 125, 375, 225, 125

Solution:

The frequency of given set of observations:

Values

Here the maximum frequency is 4 which is 125.
Hence, Mode = 125

Question 3. Find the mode for the following series:
7.5, 7.3, 7.2, 7.2, 7.4, 7.7, 7.7, 7.5, 7.3, 7.2, 7.6, 7.2

Solution:

Frequency of the given set of observations:

Values

7.2

Here the maximum frequency is 4 which is 7.2.
Hence, mode = 7.2 

Question 4. Find the mode of the following data in each case:
(i) 14, 25, 14, 28, 18, 17, 18, 14, 23, 22, 14, 18

Solution: 

First arrange the data in the ascending order:
14, 14, 14, 14, 17, 18, 18, 18, 22, 23, 25, 28
Here we can clearly see that 14 occurs 4 times, hence it has the highest frequency.
So, mode = 14

(ii) 7, 9, 12, 13, 7, 12, 15, 7, 12, 7, 25, 18, 7

Solution: 

Frequency of the given set of observations:

Values
