Questions: 38 / 50

Instructions:
Read the following information carefully and answer the questions which follow- In a recent study of responses to visual images, researchers found that women most frequently gave the rating ‘most attractive’ to images of male faces that were more feminine in contour, and rated more masculine faces, on average, ‘less attractive’. The researchers concluded that modern women prefer men who are less obviously masculine in their facial features.
38. The conclusion would be most severely weakened if which of the following were true?
Facial features are not the criterion that most women use to decide whether a man is attractive.
The visual images were computer generated composites of photographs and not pictures of actual men.
The rating scale was a ten point scale with most attractive scoring 1-2 and least attractive scoring 8-10.
Most popular male actors have the features that the study allocated to the more masculine category.
The faces with the more masculine features were all significantly older than those with the feminine features.
Solution: The researchers are testing preference for one feature: the masculinity/femininity of the faces. However, if the faces have other differences, say race or size or age, then the subjects could be responding to that feature. In statement E, the correct answer, we have the possibility that the subjects are responding to age, a situation that is very damaging to the conclusion.

Instructions:
Read the following information carefully and answer the questions which follow- In a recent study of responses to visual images, researchers found that women most frequently gave the rating ‘most attractive’ to images of male faces that were more feminine in contour, and rated more masculine faces, on average, ‘less attractive’. The researchers concluded that modern women prefer men who are less obviously masculine in their facial features.
39. Which is the following is an assumption that the researchers apparently made in this study?
The women who participated in the study were sufficiently representative of modern women in general.
Male faces are, in general, attractive to women.
Visual images are important to women.
It is impossible to predict what features an ideal face would have.
Women in previous ages would have preferred more masculine men.
Solution: The conclusion refers to “modern women” a fact that suggests the authors think their work applies to all modern women. Hence they do assume what is stated in A.
