Answer

The male's z-score is higher, therefore it has a relatively higher BMI.

Work Step by Step

The z-scores: $z_{male}=\frac{value-mean}{standard \ deviation}=\frac{28-26.601}{5.359}=0.261$. $z_{female}=\frac{value-mean}{standard \ deviation}=\frac{29-28.441}{7.394}=0.076$. The male's z-score is higher, therefore it has a relatively higher BMI.
