Default Weekly Practice Questions - S Broverman

I am posting Exam P practice questions every Monday.
They can be found at my website www.sambroverman.com ,
at the "Question of the Week" link. Also, there is also a link to
an excerpt from the Exam P study guide I have written
for ACTEX.

Can I conclude that next week's question will be:

Using the information from week 1's problem, and given that 90% of those who see at least one of the movies name Gandalf is their favorite character, what percentage of those who see only "The Return of the King" name Gandalf as their favorite character?

(Correct answer, used on Course C this time: not enough information. In this case, not enough since independence was not specified.)

Gandalf's logic is too confusing for the likes of Samwise
(not wise enough, its seems).

If you will be in the Toronto area this spring
or summer, you might be able to see the live musical version
of Lord of the Rings. I was able to be a patron of arts by
donating a couch for an apartment shared by a couple of
the actors (the ones playing Frodo and Pippin). When
they came to pick it up, I was looking for hairy feet, but
those tricksy hobbitses had winter boots on, so I'll just have
to wait for spring.
