Summary Introduction

To examine: Whether the statement “Person T was proportionately small for gestational age” is true or false.

Introduction: An infant or a fetus that is smaller than normal for the number of weeks of pregnancy is referred as Small for gestational age (SGA). The birth weights of SGA babies will be normally less than 10th percentile for babies of the same gestational age.

Explanation

Person T was born at 35 weeks of pregnancy and he weighed 2075 g. Relative to his weight and length, his waist circumference was estimated to be low. Also, at 4 months of age, he was hospitalized for an infection.

The table below depicts the percentiles (Pctl) of weight in grams for newborn according to gestational age:
