Explain your reasoning. Select the correct choice below and, if necessary, fill in the answer boxes within your choice. O A. Yes, the graph fulfills the properties of the normal distribution. The mean is approximately (Type whole numbers.) and the standard deviation is about O B. No, because the graph crosses the x-axis. OC. No, because the graph is skewed right. O D.
