A. 38 to 46
B. 38 to 54
C. 42 to 50
D. 44 to 48
E. 46 to 50

value = mean +2 * sd and mean-2* sd

so value ; 46 + 2*4 and 46-2*4
; 54 and 38
so value would be from 38 to 54 IMO B

We are basically asked to calculate the range of two std.dev. around a given mean:

Mean + 2* Std. Dev = 46 + 2*4 = 54 (Upper Limit)
Mean - 2* Std. Dev = 46-2*4 = 38 (Lower Limit)

Hence the range we are looking for extends from 38 to 54.

Best regards,
Chris
