A recent study was conducted to investigate the duration of time required to complete a certain manual dexterity task. The reported mean was 10.2 seconds with a standard deviation of 16.0 seconds. Suppose the reported values are the true mean and standard deviation for the population of subjects in the study. If a random sample of 144 subjects is selected from the population, what is the approximate probability that the mean of the sample will be more than 11.0 seconds?

A 0.1151

B 0.2743

C 0.7257

D 0.8849

E Based on the values of the true mean and true standard deviation, it can be concluded that the population distribution is not normal and therefore the probability cannot be calculated.

Answer: The correct answer is 0.2743
