We need to determine whether the random variable "mark on geography test" is discrete or continuous.
Discrete random variables take on values that are restricted to defined separated values, for example: integers or counts.
Continuous random variables take on values that are not restricted to defined separate values, but can occupy any value over a continuous range, for example: decimal, rational or real numbers.
The mark on a geography test can only take on integer values when the mark is out of 50.
The random variable is then discrete.
Result:
Discrete.
