    The correct answer is C. Scored above the mean for 10-year-olds.


    IQ tests are used to measure intelligence in individuals by testing mathematical ability, memory, analytical skills, among others. As a result of this process, individuals obtain a score that classifies them into three categories that include average intelligence, low intelligence or high intelligence. Nowadays, the rate for average intelligence is between 85, and 115, this implies if Larry's cousin obtained a score of 120 he is above the mean for 10-year-olds because this score is about 115 considering the average in IQ score is from 85 to 115.
