10 20 30 40 50 60 70 / 80 90 100 110 120 ...125 70 / 50... Which I pick... B.
By the way, I made up that way to get the answer, not a real technique.
im thinking it sounds like a binomial probability setup

that what these are
125 C 70 times success^(70) times failure^(125-70) 125 C 70 (1/2)^(70) (1/2)^(125-70) soo:\[\sum_{k=70}^{125}\binom{125}{k}.5^{k}.5^{125-k}\]
or we can try a normal approximation :)
mean = np = 125(.5) = 62.5 so we would expect 62.5 of the population to be girls sd = sqrt(npq) = sqrt(62.5*.5) = sqrt(31.25)
do you have to do this all by hand or do you have a ti83?
\[z=\frac{x-mean}{sd}\] \[z=\frac{70-62.5}{\sqrt{31.25}}=1.34\] looking on a ztable; that corresponds to about 100% - 91%
so yeah, it aint gonna be B, but it does look like it will be close to 10%
