    Most consistent player is the one with least dispersion in the scores. For this, Coefficient of Variance is used to measure relative measure of dispersion between two sets.

    Coefficient of Variance(CV) =
    Standard Deviation
    Mean

    Calculating it for all the four players.
    K's CV = 0.167
    L's CV = 0.138
    M's CV = 0.114
    N's CV = 0.329
    Larger the value of CV, less consistent is the player. So the most consistent player is M.

    Correct Option: B
