61. Given below are two statements, one labelled as Assertion (A) and the other labelled as Reason (R). Indicate your answer using the codes given below :

Assertion (A) : Scientists found activation in pre-frontal cortex neurons involved in planning motor actions whenever a monkey in their experiment saw a picture of a peanut.

Reason (R) : The mirror neurons respond to actions that the animal plans and performs itself and also to the same actions performed by others. These are likely to play a role in learning by observation.

(A) Both (A) and (R) are true and (R) is correct explanation of (A).

(B) Both (A) and (R) are true, but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A).

(C) (A) is true, but (R) is false.

(D) (A) is false, but (R) is true.

Instruction for Q. 71 to 75 :

Read the following paragraph and answer the five questions that follow :

A researcher wanted to study the effect of a specific drug on the activity of rats. He suspected if the effect of the drug is moderated by temperature. He varied drug dosage (A) at three levels-no drug (placebo), low drug dosage (5 mg/kg body-weight) and high drug dosage (10 mg/kg bodyweight). He varied temperature (B) at two levels – 25 Celsius and 39 Celsius. Fifteen rats were randomly assigned to each of the six groups. The activity scores for each rate were obtained through activity wheel. The cell means and standard deviations for activity scores were obtained for the six cells. All the cells had comparable standard deviations. A suitable analysis of variance was carried out using the activity scores as the dependent variable. One of the interesting finding in this research was that the F ratio defined as ‘MSA B/MSE’ was statistically significant at .01 level.

71. From the above paragraph, it can be inferred that the assumption of homogeneity of variance

(A) has been violated

(B) has been satisfied

(C) cannot be evaluated in the absence of relevant data

(D) suggests square-root transformation of data in this case.

72. What would be the degrees of freedom for error variance?

(A) 83

(B) 84

(C) 89

(D) 90

73. From the significant F ratio, ‘MSA B/MSE’, it can be inferred that

(A) the main effect of drug dosage is significant

(B) the main effect of temperature is significant

(C) the effect of drug dosage is moderated by temperature.

(D) the main effect of drug dosage, the main effect of temperature, and the interaction effect of the two, all are significant.

74. What would be the degrees of freedom for the interaction term?

(A) 2

(B) 3

(C) 5

(D) 6

75. Since the F ratio, defined as ‘MSA B/MSE’, is significant, it would be desirable to carry out

(A) post-hoc comparisons for the three levels of A

(B) post-hoc comparison for the two levels of B.

(C) compute 3 2 multivariate ANOVA

(D) simple effects analysis
