Comparing distributions

Do we have to talk about specific values (median, SD, IQR) when we compare distributions? Or can we just say on is greater or lesser?

Just compare and save time. If you have extra time you can write the specifics. But just comparing is enough!!

Talking about specific values can enhance your response but if it is very clear that one mean is greater than the other for example, then it likely won’t make a difference. Include it to be safe.
