Which score indicates the highest relative position? a. A score of 3.2 on a test with $\bar x$=4.6 and s =1.5, $z=\frac{3.2-4.6}{1.5}=-0.93$ b. A score of 630 on a test with $\bar x$= 800 and s = 200, $z=\frac{630-800}{200}=-0.85$ c. A score of 43 on a test with $\bar x$= 50 and s= 5, $z=\frac{43-50}{5}=-1.40$ As can be seen, the z-score for (b) indicates the highest relative position.
