The record of blood groups of 30 students of Class VIII can be assembled as:

S.No. BLOOD GROUP FREQUENCY
1 A 9
2 B 6
3 AB 3
4 O 12

Frequency: It is the no. of times a particular value arises.

Total= 9+6+3+12=30

Hence from the data, we can say that, 

The most common is what appears to be maximum no. of times = 12 => O

The rarest is what appears to be minimum no. of times = 3 => AB
