c. both of the above statements are false

Step-by-step explanation:

The Empirical Rule states that, for a normally distributed random variable:

Approximately 68% of the measures are within 1 standard deviation of the mean.

Approximately 95% of the measures are within 2 standard deviations of the mean.

Approximately 99.7% of the measures are within 3 standard deviations of the mean.

Distribution skewed to the right

This means that the Empirical Rule is not applicable, and the two statements are false, and thus, the correct answer is given by option c.

The first would be false nonetheless, but the second would be true if the distribution was normal.
