I hope so, I want to see if I was right about the hot water sitting in the tank.

First, I agree with the new consensus that the answer for the milk production question is wrong. Thanks to aliciachen for pointing out our error. I think I was the one that originally threw that answer out, so sorry to everybody for that.
Second, I do not think #10 on the master list was on the real test. It must be experimental.
Third, we can definitely add the new question concerning email and mail. I think it went something like this:
Q: A survey asked people whether they found email to be useful. The majority of those who responded by snail mail said no. The majority that responded by email said yes. This situation conforms to what principle?
A: People are more likely to find something useful if they use it regularly.
I agree, I think at this point most of us agree that the answer on the Master List is not entirely true, and most likely inaccurate.If you mean the survey on technology where some people were asked if they thought email was useful and the ones who wrote in via postal mail said no, while the ones who wrote in through email said yes. It was a principle question I believe and the answer was, "People find value in technology they use" or something like that.
MORE IMPORTANTLY, in my infinite wisdom, I have just thought of another question that I am 100% positive was on the LR section. Let me reiterate - I did NOT have an experimental LR, so this is a fact:
The question had something to do with a magazine survey, and people responding to the survey via email or postcard or something, and the question had something to do with an inference from that data or something. I can never remember answers until people start spitting them out, so let's get cracking on this. I'm really impressed with myself here for remembering these.
Also, the one with milk production. I have a slight issue with this one as well.I agree with your answer here.
The reasoning seemed to be something along the lines of: Farmers who want to increase production in their most productive cows should increase their feed intake. This serves to decrease the percentage of energy used for maintenance of bodily functions (whatever the hell that means) and increase the amount of total energy available for milk production.
The main point is that farmers will produce more milk if they up their most productive cows' feed intake. Why? Because there will be more energy available for milk production.
The answer I chose identified the logical gap: Even if there is more energy available, who's to say that the additional increase in energy will go toward milk production? The answer said this more or less: "The same percentage of energy available will be used for milk production"
Am I way off? Please let me know!
