E- It has been proven that students retain knowledge better when learning one subject at a time, as is the case in the"History Rocks" program.159.A convenience store manager noticed that a cooler which had been stocked with only a cola product and an iced-teaproduct had 15 colas left at the end of the day but only 3 iced-tea beverages. As a result, the manager reasoned thathe should increase the amount of iced tea and decrease the amount of cola he ordered from the distributor.Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the manager's rationale for ordering more iced tea and lesscola?a. The cooler in question is the only place in the store where the cola and iced tea beverages are stocked.b. On that day, a month-long $1,000,000 sweepstakes began, with prizes awarded via the bottlecaps on the iced teabeverage.c. At the beginning of the day, the cooler was stocked with at least as many of the iced tea beverages as of the colabeverages.d. On the subsequent day, the remaining three iced tea beverages all sold within the first hour after the storeopened.e. During that week, a special "buy one, get one free" sale was in effect for the cola beverage.160.In a recent poll, 71% of respondents reported that they cast votes in the most recent national election. Votingrecords show, however, that only 60% of eligible voters actually voted in that election.Which of the following pieces of evidence, if true, would provide the best explanation for the discrepancy?(A) The margin of error for the survey was plus or minus five percentage points.(B) Fifteen percent of the surveys respondents were living overseas at the time of the election.(C) Prior research has shown that people who actually do vote are also more likely to respond to polls than those whodo not vote.(D) Some people who intend to vote are prevented from doing so by last minute conflicts on election day or othercomplications.(E) Polls about voting behavior typically have margins of error within plus or minus three percentage points.161.Mechanicorp’s newest product costs so little to make that it appears doubtful the company will be able to sell itwithout increasing the markup the company usually allows for profit: potential clients would simply not believe thatsomething so inexpensive would really work. Yet Mechanicorp’s reputation is built on fair prices incorporating onlymodest profit margins.The statements above, if true, most strongly support which of the following?(A) Mechanicorp will encounter difficulties in trying to set a price for its newest product that will promote saleswithout threatening to compromise the company’s reputation.(B) Mechanicorp achieves large annual profits, despite small profits per unit sold, by means of a high volume of sales.
