Correct. For symmetric data, the distance between minimum and the first quartile will be about the same as the distance between the third quartile and the maximum. And the distance between the first quartile and the median and the median and the third quartile will be about the same. But all the distances do not have to be the same for symmetric data.

Correct. The opposite is true. Because the length of the box is short compared to the line on the right side of the boxplot, we know that the GNP’s are closely clustered in this interval.

Correct. The distance from Min to Q1 is much greater than the distance from Q3 to Max. Similarly, the distance from Q1 to the median is much greater than from the median to Q3. So, the tail is on the left, making the shape left skewed.
