1. Complete question:

You are conducting an experiment to understand the mating preferences of sasquatches. To do this, you decide to create fake sasquatches with different-sized feet to see if real sasquatches prefer to mate with individuals with certain foot sizes. The dependent variable in your experiment is

A. The foot sizes of the sasquatch models.

B. Whether or not a sasquatch model attracts a mate

C. The number of sasquatch models you use.

D. The sexes of the sasquatch models.

Chose the correct answer and explain it.

B. Whether or not a sasquatch model attracts a mate ⇒ The response of real sasquatches to model individuals with different feet sizes.

Explanation:

The independent and the dependent variables are the two principal factors needed in an experiment.

• Independent variable: Refers to all the variables in an experiment that provoke a response in another variable. The independent variable changes or is controlled and modified in the experiment to analyze how another variable responds to it. It changes to analyze its effects on the dependent variable. Usually, the independent variable is represented by the X letter.
• Dependent variable: Refers to the variable that reacts to the changes produced in the independent variable. Depending on how the independent variable is modified, the dependent variable change. It is usually identified by the letter Y.

In the exposed experiment,

• Your goal: understand the mating preferences of sasquatches
• Your independent variable: The size of model sasquatches feet. You change the size of the feet to analyze how sasquatches respond to different sizes, and which feet-sized individuals do they prefer to mate with.
• Your dependent variable: The response of real sasquatches to model individuals with different feet sizes. The response of real sasquatches will depend on the model feet size and will choose individuals with a certain foot size to mate. Whether or not a sasquatch model attracts a mate.
