      36.30sqm

    Correct Answer
    A. 35.18sqm
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 35.18 square meters because the median floor area in 2000 was 36.30 square meters, which means that half of the occupied housing units in Cavite had a floor area less than or equal to 36.30 square meters. Since the median is the middle value, the other half of the occupied housing units would have a floor area greater than or equal to 36.30 square meters. Therefore, the floor area of the housing units in question would be less than 36.30 square meters, but greater than the next smallest value listed, which is 35.18 square meters.
