Statistics is defined as aggregate of numerical facts. Give a few examples.

Yes, statistics is the aggregate of numerical facts and figures. A single value does not represent statistics. For instance, when we say that marks of student A is 40, it is not statistics, it is simply an information. However, 'marks of students A, B, and C are 40, 47 and 42' and their mean marks is 43 represents statistics. Similarly, the statement 'temperature of city X on Monday is  32°' cannot be termed as statistics. Rather, temperature of city X on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday was 32°, 33°, 31°, 30° respectively' can be termed as statistics.
