No of elements within 1 st. deviation from mean are in the range

\((6.8−3.6)\) and \((6.8+3.6)\) i.e 1 st. deviation to the left of mean and 1 st. deviation to the right of mean

so no of elements in the range \(3.2\) to \(10.4=\) {4,5,6,7,9,9,10} \(=7\)

Option E

For example,
if IQ has an average of 50 and a standard deviation of 10,
and you have an IQ of 70,
then you are 2 standard deviations above the average

So this question is asked in (6.8-3.6) <= element < (6.8 + 3.6), how many of these elements are

Option E for me : the required nos should be within
6.8- 3.6 to 6.8+3.6
Thus seven nos out of the total nos given.

Pl post it in correct forum that is PS and not DS.
Also it is not 700 level Q, involves straight calculations.
