11. <22{1[1(13)]}> A recent study of 100 employees from six departments of a major corporation found 65% to be sleep deprived. The researchers concluded that the majority of corporate employees are sleep deprived.
The researcher’s conclusion is suspect because it (Points : 1)
assumes that corporate employees are more sleep deprived than other people
is based on evidence that is statistically impossible
fails to describe the effects the sleep deprivation has
relies on a sample that is too small to represent the entire corporate workforce

    It's probably the last one, although I don't like any of the answers. I'd like to know how the researchers measured sleep deprivation. What were the criteria for determining if a person was sleep deprived?

  • PSY -

    Depending on the size of the corporation, the last choice might be right.

    However, why are they measuring sleep deprivation in the first place? What effect does this have for the corporation?

    relies on a sample that is too small to represent the entire corporate workforce.
