If I'm not mistaken there wasnt a mean in the qs but the qs was to remove the last person with the biggest result

#8




then it is easy only mean will decrease
the mode and median will stay the same 
#9




The median should also decrease if you remove the biggest score from the group.
Example 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 here the median is 5 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 here the median is 4.5
