1. You run an experiment to test which brand of food your dog prefers. You offer her three different brands of food at each meal, presenting them all at the same time (so that she does not just prefer the one that comes first!). Three weeks of data collection indicate that she ate Brand C more often than Brand A or Brand B. What can you conclude from these results?

2. Why do scientists have differing opinions about what the same set of data means?
