Activity I, Part B: Answers Question 1: Possible alternative explanations: team played well best team in the division better players bigger players Question 2: Possible alternative explanations: More aware of problems gets Dr.’s attention knows risk factors Question 3: Hot temperatures may make people be edgy and cause them to commit crimes; potential victims may be more plentiful in warm weather because more people go outside; criminals may find it more comfortable to be out committing their crimes in warm weather than in cold weather. Question 4: Possible alternative explanations: onions in the food stress flu meat in the food Question 5: The politician ignored possible third variables that could cause both Scout membership and crime, such as socioeconomic class. Traditionally, Scouting has been most popular in small towns and suburbs among middle-class youngsters; it has never been very attractive or even available to youth growing up in densely populated, urban, high-crime areas. Question 6: Did tattoos cause motorcyle accidents? Or for that matter, did motorcycle accidents cause tattoos? The researchers suggested that a third (unmeasured) variable was in fact the cause of both: A tendency to take risks and to be involved in flamboyant personal displays led to tattooing one's body and to driving a motorcycle recklessly.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
