Feral cats tend to be lighter than domestic cats, mainly due to a lack of regular access to food. An animal shelter in Boston weighed a random sample of newly admitted stray cats over several weeks. They found that a 95% confidence interval for the mean weight (in pounds) of the cats was (8.6014, 9.9986). Which is true?

▸ 95% of all Boston stray cats weigh between 8.6014 and 9.9986 pounds.

▸ 95% of all samples would show a mean feral cat weight between 8.6014 and 9.9986 pounds.

▸ 95% of the cats they checked weighed between 8.6014 and 9.9986 pounds.

▸ We're 95% sure that the mean feral cat weight in Boston is between 8.6014 and 9.9986 pounds.

▸ There is a 95% chance that feral cats weigh between 8.6014 and 9.9986 pounds.
