A bookstore sold 11 books by Haruki Murakami, two books by Henry Thoreau, and six books by Carl Jung. Determine the mode for this data.

We know that the mode of any data set is the value or item that appears most often. In this question, we have 11 books by Haruki Murakami. We have two books by Henry Thoreau. And finally, we have six books by Carl Jung. We are looking for the book that appears the most. As 11 is greater than two and six, 11 is the highest frequency. As this value corresponds to the books of Haruki Murakami, we can say that he is the mode for this data. The mode will be the author with the highest number of books.
