Data from the last $10\text{ years}$ shows that the average high school male has a personal best long jump of $18.9\text{ feet}$ with a standard deviation of $1.9\text{ feet}$. The average high school female has a personal best long jump of $16.5\text{ feet}$ with a standard deviation of $2.2\text{ feet}$. Both distributions are approximately normally distributed.

To earn All-Conference recognition, a jumper typically has to be $2$ standard deviations above the mean for their respective gender.

In a survey of $1{,}000$ female high jumpers, about how many girls would you expect to jump so well that they earn All-Conference recognition from not only the girls standard but also the boys standard?

A

Near $0$.

B

About $1$.

C

About $2$.

D

About $10$.

E

About $24$.
