The participants included both males and females and were divided into three age categories (18-24, 25-35, and 36-50 years). After reading the passage, concentration was measured by a proofreading task; the researcher measured the number of errors detected on the task.

a.    Standard Deviation
b.    Independent Sample t test
c.    Correlation
d.    Factorial Anova

a.    Gender, Sexual Arousal, Age
b.    Gender, Age, Concentration
c.    Sexual Arousal, Age, Concentration
d.    Sexual Arousal, Concentration, Gender

6.    Which of the following is the Dependent Variable

a.    Sexual Arousal
b.    Gender
c.    Concentration
d.    Age

7.    Which of the following represents  the design?
