Ignore this question:
1. It's flawed;
2. The 68.2-95.4-99.7 rule of normal distribution you are supposed to use to solve this question is not tested on the GMAT.

Since the question is flawed and tests the concept which is out of the scope of the GMAT then yes, you won't see such a question on the test at all.
