Based on the latest U.S. Census count, only $48.0\%$ of Alaskans are female while $51.7\%$ of Rhode Islanders are female.

What is the probability that randomly chosen samples of $50\text{ residents}$ from each of the two states would show a larger proportion of women in Alaska than in Rhode Island?

A

$0.356$

B

$0.394$

C

$0.606$

D

$0.644$

E

Since we know the true proportion of women in Rhode Island is greater than the true proportion of women in Alaska, it is not possible for a randomly selected sample from each state to show a larger proportion of women in Alaska.
