Zack takes the SAT, and his best friend, Nick, takes the ACT.

Zack’s SAT Math score is $680$, and Nick’s ACT Math score is $27$. SAT Math scores in the county are normally distributed with a mean of $500$ and a standard deviation of $100$. ACT Math scores in the county are also normally distributed but with a mean of $18$ and a standard deviation of $6$.

Assuming that both tests measure the same kind of ability, who has scored better relative to their peers?

A

Zack, because his score is higher than Nick’s.

B

Zack, because his standardized score is higher than Nick’s.

C

Nick, because ACT math is more difficult than SAT math.

D

Nick, because his standardized score is higher than Zack’s.

E

A valid comparison cannot be made between these two scores.
