    Question:

    Suppose a person reinforces a rat for responding to an 800-Hz tone and then observes that its response to a novel 750-Hz tone is about 50 percent of its response to the 800-Hz tone. The lower response to the 750-Hz tone occurs because the rat:

    A) cannot tell the difference between the two tones, so it responds by guessing.

    B) expects a 50-percent probability that its response will lead to a reward.

    C) can hear the 750-Hz tone about half as well as the 800-Hz tone.

    D) has learned to discriminate between the tones; therefore, it makes different responses to them.

    Answer:

    B) expects a 50-percent probability that its response will lead to a reward.

    Explanation:

    The response of the rat is a   as a result of the expectant of a reward as such the response is lower as the consequence can be either a reinforce or a punishment. Every type of reinforcement raises the possibility of a response. Therefore since there is a reinforcement and there is a novel sound the response of the rat is that there may be a 50 % likelihood that its response my lead to a reward
