Also, the one with milk production. I have a slight issue with this one as well.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!
Nine48: I don't remember it specifically saying that the proportion (%) used for maintence functions going down, but I know that it said that "if you increase feed intake the amount of TOTAL energy left available for milk production goes up. There are several assumptions in this argument: (this is not an exhaustive list by any means)1.) Most productive cows can actually produce more milk (This was not an answer choice, though, but if it were there it would have definitely been the best)2.) The increased amount of TOTAL energy left available after maintenance functions will be used to increase milk production. (The answer I gave touched on this slightly)
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.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.
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.
