a) A designed study (experiment) deliberately imposes some treatment on individuals in order to observe their responses. An observational study tries to gather information without distribing the scene they are observing. Since each group was given a treament of gender composition and decision rule, a treatment was deliberately imposed on the experimental units and thus the study is a designed study. b) The experimental units are the individuals on whom an experiment is perfomed. Experimental unit=Subject in the study A response variable (or dependent variable) is a variable that measures an outcome or result of a study. Response variable=Number of words spocen by women per 1000 total words spoken during deliberations. c) The factors are variables whose levels are manipulated by the experimenter and thus these variables are controlled by the experimenter. Factors=Gender composition, Decision rule The treatments are what the subjects are subjected to. The treatments are the 12 combinations of gender composition and decision rule in this case. Treatments=0 females  Unanimous, 1 female Unanimous, 2 females  Unanimous, 3 females  Unanimous, 4 females  Unanimous, 5 females  Unanimous,
0 females  Majority rule, 1 female  Majority rule, 2 females  Majority rule, 3 females  Majority rule, 4 females  Majority rule. 5 females  Majority rule.
