For items 5-6 A new medication is being tested to determine its effectiveness in the treatment of eczema, an inflammatory condition of the skin. Thirty patients with eczema were selected to participate in the study. The patients were randomly divided into two groups. Twenty patients in an experimental group received the medication, while ten patients in a control group received no medication. The results after two months are shown below. Experimental group (medication) Control group (no medication) Improved 8 Improved 2 No improvement 12 No Improvement 8 5. Based on the data, I think the medication was: a. somewhat effective b. basically ineffective 6. If you chose option a, select the one If you chose option b, select the explanation below that best describes one explanation below that best your reasoning. describes your reasoning. a. 40% of the people (8/20) in the a.

Only 40% of the patients in experimental group improved (8/20), the experimental group while only 20% improved in the improved (8/20), while 20%. control group (2/10). improved in the control group (2/10). Items 7-9 Listed below are several possible reasons one might question the results of the experiment described above. Mark A for every reason you agree with. A = Agree B = Disagree 7. It’s not possible to compare the two groups because there are different numbers of patients in each group. 8. With a sample size of 30, it’s possible that random assignment of patients may have, just by chance, placed the most severe cases in one of the groups. 9. I’m not given enough information about how doctors decided whether or not patients improved. Doctors may have been biased in their judgment. 10. Two containers, labeled A and B, are filled with red and blue marbles in the following quantities. Container Red Blue A 6 4 B 60 40 Each container is shaken vigorously. After choosing one of the containers, you will reach in, without looking, draw out a marble. If the marble is blue, you win $50. Which container gives you the best chance of drawing a blue marble? a. Container A (with 6 red and 4 blue) b. Container B (with 60 red and 40 Blue) c. Equal chances from each container. 11. Which of the following sequences is most likely to result from flipping a fair coin five times? (H=Heads, T=Tails) a. H H H T T b. T H H T H c. T H T T T d. H T H T H e. All four are equally likely Items 12-15 Select one or more explanations for possible coin-flipping outcomes. A = Agree B = Disagree 12. Since coin flipping is random, the coin ought to alternate frequently between landing heads and tails. 13. If you repeatedly flipped a coin five times, each of the sequences would occur about as often as any sequence. 14. If you get a couple of heads in a row, the probability of tails on the next flip increases. 15. Every sequence of five flips has exactly the same probability of occurring. 17. Listed below are the same sequences of H’s and T’s that were listed in Item 11. Which of the sequences is least likely to result from flipping a coin 5 times? a. H H H T T b. T H H T H c. T H T T T d. H T H T H e. All four sequences are equally unlikely Items 17-22 A marketing research company was asked to determine how much money teenagers (ages 13-19) spend on recorded music (cassette tapes, CD’s, and DVD’s). The company randomly selected 80 malls located around the country. A field researcher stood in a central location in the mall and passers-by who appeared to be the approximate age were asked to fill out the questionnaire. A total of 2,050 questionnaires were completed by teenagers. On the basis of this survey, the research company reported that the average teenager in this country spends $155 each year on recorded music. Listed below are several statements concerning the survey. Mark A for each statement you agree with. Mark B for each statement you disagree with. A = Agree B = Disagree 17. The average is based on teenagers’ estimates of what they spend and therefore could be quite different from what teenagers actually spend. 18. They should have done the survey at more than 80 malls if they wanted an average based on teenagers throughout the country. 19. The sample of 2,050 teenagers is too small to permit drawing a conclusion about the entire country. 20. They should have asked teenagers coming out of music stores. 21. The average could be a poor estimate of the spending of all teenagers given that teenagers were not randomly chosen to fill out the questionnaire. 22. The average could be a poor estimate of the spending of all teenagers given that only teenagers in malls were sampled. 23. Five faces of a fair die are painted black, and one face is painted white. The die is rolled six times. Which of the following results is more likely? a. Black side up on five of the rolls; white side up on the other roll b. Black side up on all six rolls c. a and b are equally likely 24. Half of all newborn children are girls and half are boys. Hospital A records an average of 50 births a day. Hospital B records an average of 10 births a day. On a particular day, which hospital is more likely to record 80% or more female births. a. Hospital A (with 50 births a day) b. Hospital B (with 10 births a day) c. The two hospitals are equally likely to record such an event. 25. The Caldwells want to buy a new car, and they have narrowed their choices to a Buick or an Oldsmobile. They first consulted an issue of Consumer Reports, which compared rates of repairs for various cars. Records or repairs done on 400 cars of each type showed somewhat fewer mechanical problems with the Buick than the Oldsmobile. The Caldwells then talked to three friends, two Oldsmobile owners, and one former Buick Owner. Both Oldsmobile owners reported having a few mechanical problems, but nothing major. The Buick owner, however, exploded when asked how he liked his car: “First the fuel injection went out-- $250 bucks. Next I started having trouble with the rear end and had to replace it. I finally decided to sell it after the transmission went. I’d never buy another Buick.” The Caldwells want to buy the car that is less likely to require major repair work. Given what they currently know, which car would you recommend that they buy? a. I would recommend they buy the Oldsmobile, primarily because of all the trouble their friend had with his Buick. Since they haven’t heard similar horror stories about an Oldsmobile, they should go with it. b. I would recommend they buy the Buick in spite of their friend’s bad experience. This is just one case, while the information reported in Consumer Report is based on many cases. And according to the data, the Buick is somewhat less likely to require repairs. c. I would tell them that it didn’t matter which car they bought. Even though one of the models might be more likely than the other to require repairs, they could still, just by chance, get stuck with a particular car that would need a lot of repairs. They may as well toss a coin to decide. 26. Forty college students participated in a study of the effect of sleep on test scores. Twenty of the students volunteered to stay up all night studying the night before the test (no sleep group). The other 20 students (the control group) went to bed by 11:00 p.m. on the evening of the test. The test scores for each group are shown in the graphs below. Each dot on the graph represents a particular student’s score. For example, the two dots above 80 in the bottom graph indicate that two students in the sleep group scored 80 on the test. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 Test Scores: No- Sleep Group . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 Test Scores: Sleep Group Examine the two graphs carefully. Then choose from the 6 possible conclusions listed below the one you most agree with. a. The no-sleep group did better because none of these students scored below 40 and, a student in this group achieved the highest score. b. The no-sleep group did better because its average appears to be a little higher than the average of the sleep group. c. There is no difference between the two groups because there is considerable overlap in the scores of the two groups. d. There is no difference between the two groups because the difference between their averages is small compared to the amount of variation in the scores. e. The sleep group did better because its average appears to be a little higher than the average of the no sleep group. Items 27-31 For one month, 500 elementary students kept a daily record of the hours spent watching television. The average number of hours per week spent watching television was 28. The researchers conducting the study also obtained report cards for each of the students. They found that the students who did well in school spent less time watching television than those students who did poorly. Listed below are several possible statements concerning the results of this research. Mark A for each statement you agree with. A = Agree B = Disagree 27. The sample of 500 is too small to permit drawing conclusions. 28. If a student decreases the amount of time spent watching television, his or her performance in school would improve. 29. Even though students who did well watched less television, this doesn’t necessarily mean that watching television hurts school performance. 30. One month is not a long enough period of time to estimate how many hours the students really spend watching television. 31. The research demonstrates that watching television causes poorer performance in school. Items 32-37 The school committee of a small town wanted to determine the average number of children per household in their town. They divided the total number of children in the town by 50, the total number of households. Indicate which statements must be true if the average number of children per household is exactly 2.2. Mark A for the statements you agree with and B for the statements you disagree with. A = Agree B = Disagree 32. Half of the households in the town have more than 2 children. 33. More households in the town have 3 children than have 2 children. 34. There are 110 children in the town. 35. There are 2.2 children in the town for every adult. 36. The most common number of children in a household is 2. 37. More households in the town have 2 children than have 3 children. 38. When two dice are simultaneously thrown it is possible that one of the following two results occurs: Result 1: A 5 and a 6 are obtained. Result 2: A 5 is obtained twice. Select the response that you agree with most: a. The chance of obtaining each of these results is equal. b. There is more chance of obtaining Result 1. c. There is more chance of obtaining Result 2. d. It is impossible to give an answer. 39. When three dice are simultaneously thrown, which of the following results is MOST LIKELY to be obtained? a. Result 1: A 5, a 3 and a 6 b. Result 2: A 5 three times c. Result 3: A 5 twice and a 3 d. All three results are equally likely 40. When three dice are simultaneously thrown, which of these three results is LEAST LIKELY to be obtained? a. Result 1: A 5, a 3 and a 6 b. Result 2: A 5 three times c. Result 3: A 5 twice and a 3 d. All three results are equally unlikely
