The reaction time of 1000 Rhesus monkeys was measured. The average time it took the monkeys to respond to a quickly moving object in their visual fields was .135 seconds, with a standard deviation of .021 seconds (assume a normal distribution). If one of the geriatric monkeys had a reaction time of .205 seconds, then that monkey’s reaction time is how many standard deviations from the mean?

A. 0 – 1 standard deviations
B. 1 – 2 standard deviations
C. 2 – 3 standard deviations
D. 3 – 4 standard deviations
E. 4 – 5 standard deviations


Kudos for correct solution.

The mean is .135 while the time we need to analyze is .205. Given a sd of 0.021, we can compute how many sd there are between the time of .205 and the mean using \(\frac{.205-.135}{0.21} = 3.33\).

Thus, the time is between 3 and 4 sd above the mean. Answer D
