    and the question states d) Would it be reasonable to state that this litter contained two “unusual” puppies; i.e., a runt and a giant? Why or why not? I know my mean is 28, S.D. is 9.27 and my 95% C.I is (9.83, 46.17) but dont know what this question is asking

    and also should i use sample S.D. or population S.D.

    I think population is the correct one. Basically, I think the question is asking if you have two outliers in your data. In particular, you have a puppy that weighs 16, and one that weighs 46. Using your S.D. and CI, I think you're supposed to figure out if those puppies are "unusual."

    but if it lies in the CI can i say its normal or do i have to do some tests?

    I'm honestly not sure. If it lies in the CI though, I would tend to think it's still normal. But I'm not sure. It's been quite a while since I've had any statistics.

    like i dont know what that question means. what i wrote is its not reasonable since all those values lie in the confidence intevral so its not unsual i dont know if that is right

    most of the data is within one standard deviation of the mean
