Use the following to answer questions 14 & 15

Q15. The standard deviation of the relevant probability distribution (number of flights on time) is (closest to):
a) 1.45,
b) 2.10,
c) 3.00,
d) 7.00,
e) Impossible to calculate from the information given.
I'll avoid giving away my thinking to stop eliminating potential answers (because I got it wrong). Thanks folks.
P.s. This is all the information for the question.
