The $5$-number summary for a certain distribution is as follows:


The mean of the distribution is $75.10$ and the standard deviation is $31.27$.

Based upon this information, is the distribution approximately normal? Why or why not?


Yes, because the $Q3$ value and $Q1$ value are equally far from the median, and the median is approximately equal to the mean.


Yes, because the values in the $5$-number summary are completely symmetric around the mean.


Yes, because approximately $50\%$ of the data falls within one standard deviation of the mean. This is what would be expected in a normal distribution.


No, because $100\%$ of the data falls within $2$ standard deviations of the mean. In a normal distribution, the spread of data would be greater.


No, because the data contains a high outlier. In a normal distribution, no outliers would be present.
