Question

A value two standards deviation from the mean is more likely to occur than a value three standard deviations from the mean.
a. True
b. False

1 Answer

  • This is True - A.

    This is true because values which are less far apart from the mean; two standards deviations being closer than three standard deviations from the mean, are also more likely to occur. This is best illustrated when viewing a Gauss curve or a normal bell curve.
