Question 3 in Exercise2

I'm trying to solve Q3 in Exercise 2. As you may know that we have some lines of text 
in Feb2019 weather data. My first question is do we use TAIL/HEAD command to remove 
some rows or is there some other command to do that. I thought we could use CUT 
command for chopping rows but I haven't yet found the specific option to do so. 

At the moment I'm using tail -28 for Feb2019 and tail -29 for Feb2020 but may be 
there is a better way to do this.

Also do we have to calculate average of the column to determine which month is 
hotter/wetter or are we just comparing?
