The World Health Organization (WHO) has produced a comprehensive set of growth standards for children. These standards are based on studies of children living in 6 nations on 5 continents under optimal conditions with respect to health and nutrition. HeightforageThe table displays the percentil distribution of height, in centimeters, at 3month intervals, for boys ages 2 through 5 according to the WHO model. In a model population  a large population of boys ages 2 through 5 that conforms to the WHO growth standards  for n = 3, 15, 50, 85, and 97, nth percentile in height for a given age is the unique height among boys of that age that is greater than or equal to n percent, and less than or equal to (100 n) percent, of heights of boys of that age Attachment:

The graph shows the percentile distribution of weight, in kilograms, for heights from 80 cm to 120 cm, for boys ages 2 through 5, according to the WHO model. In a model population, for n = 3, 15, 50, 85, and 97, the nth percentile in weight for a given heigh is the unique weight among boys of that height that is greater than or equal to n percent, and less than or equal to (100  n) percent, of weights of boys of that height. For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement must be true of a boy selected at random from a model population. Otherwise, select No. A If his age is exactly 4 years 0 months, the probability that his height is at exactly 99.0 cm is 15% B. If he is 81 cm tall, he is shorter than at least 95% of boys his age. C. If he is 120 cm tall, he weighs more than 97% of boys age 2 years 6 months. http://www.gmatpill.com/gmatpracticet ... stion/1902
