(3 points) A researcher is interested in studying the effect of iron on human memory so he comes up with the following plan for an experiment. The experiment will involve 100 volunteers where 50 volunteers
are randomly selected from all female volunteers and 50 are randomly selected from all male volunteers. Each volunteer will take a memory test 30 minutes after eating spinach. Some volunteers will be
randomly assigned to eat iron-free spinach; some will eat regular spinach (with iron); others will eat a mixture of the two which contains only half the amount of iron. For each volunteer, a test score (the
number of items recalled correctly) will be recorded. The volunteers will not be told which type of spinach they have been given, but the researcher who evaluates the results will prepare the cans of spinach
right on the spot (out of sight of the volunteers).

O A. Systematic sampling
O B. Simple random sampling

D. Blocking
E. Confounding
OF. None of the above
Part iii) The treatments of this study is/are:
O A. iron
