No it is certainly not correct to conclude that the maximum number of leaves are 153 mm long because the given data does not tell us about the exact length of the leaves. It only tells us about the range in which their lengths lie. We can only conclude that the maximum number of leaves (12) have their lengths in the region 145 - 153.
