 1 - What number appears most often in the set (1,2,3). No mode.2 - What number appears most often in the set (1,2,3,1). One mode.3 - What number appears most often in the set (1,1,2,2). Two modes.4 - What number appears most often in the set (2,2,1,1). Two modes.5 - What number appears most often in the set (3,1,2,2,1). Two modes.6 - What number appears most often in the set (3,2,1,1,2). Two modes.7 - What number appears most often in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B4". B4 is an empty cell so #VALUE! is returned.8 - What number appears most often in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B5". B5 is zero so this gets included. One mode.9 - What number appears most often in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B6". B6 is text so this gets excluded. No mode.10 - What number appears most often in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B7". B7 is a logical value to this is excluded. No mode.11 - What number appears most often in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B8". B8 is a logical value so this is excluded. No mode.12 - What number appears most often in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B9". B9 is a date so this gets included as a date serial number. No mode.13 - What number appears most often in the named range that refers to the range "B1:B3". No mode.14 - What number appears most often in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B10". B10 contains an error so that gets returned.15 - What number appears most often in the set (2,"2"). Text values that are actually numbers are excluded. No mode.16 - What number appears most often in the set (1,TRUE). Logical values passed as arguments are excluded. No mode.17 - What number appears most often in the set (0,FALSE). Logical values passed as arguments are excluded. No mode.18 - What number appears most often in the set (0,"some text"). Text values passed as arguments are excluded. No mode.19 - What number appears most often in the array {0,"some text}. Text values inside arrays are excluded. No mode.20 - What number appears most often in the array {1,TRUE}. Logical values inside arrays are excluded. No mode.
