If this data were in kilograms ($1$ lb = $0.45$ kg), what would the new mean and standard deviation be?

A

Mean = $46.8\text{ kg}$;
Standard deviation = $11\text{ kg}$

B

Mean = $46.8\text{ kg}$;
Standard deviation = $4.95\text{ kg}$

C

Mean $104\text{ kg}$;
Standard deviation = $4.95\text{ kg}$

D

Mean = $104\text{ kg}$;
Standard deviation = $11\text{ kg}$

E

Mean = $46.8\text{ kg}$;
Standard deviation = unable to determine
