Under what circumstances would a score that is 15 points above the mean be considered an extreme score?

  1. a. When the mean is much larger than 15
  2. b. When the standard deviation is much larger than 15
  3. c. When the mean is much smaller than 15
  4. d. When the standard deviation is much smaller than 15

To determine
Under what circumstances would a score that is 15 points above the mean be considered an extreme score.

Explanation of Solution

Given info:

The score is 15 points above the mean.

Reason for correct answer:

The standard deviation is smaller than 15 from the mean then it would be considered as extreme score. Because, the score15 points located at right (above) or (below) side of the mean

Reason for incorrect answers:

Option (a): When the mean is much larger than 15 is wrong because it would yield a score closer to 0...
