Default normal pupil size dilemma

normal pupil size dilemma

in toxicology q, pupil size is given....and then we have to make out if it is normal, dilated or constricted.

to check for normal pupil size, i checked ncbi.nlm website and they say

2 to 4 mm in diameter in bright light to 4 to 8 mm in the dark

now what can i use as cut off range ? sounds silly but its becoming a problem.
