Together, both these factors strongly suggest that the AxA cross had involved male killing, which would induce both effects, and together with the suspected cytoplasmic incompatibility in the Male A and Female B cross, the data seems to suggest that the individuals of Strain A are infected with Wolba chi a , while those from Strain B are uninfected. From the ANOVA table, however, we see that there is only an approximately 84% and approximately .89% chance that the observed differences between the number of males, and between the number of females are real and not just coincidence, respectively; moreover, we also see that there is only a 61% chance that the differences in the sex ratios are also real and not coincidence.
