**Question description**

"all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average." Although it is not possible that all of the children in a population are above average of that population, if the mean is used as the measure of "average," then it is possible that most of them could be. To illustrate this construct an example of a class where each student has am exam score between 0 and 100, and where at least 90% of the students have an above average score.
