Survey 2 For each question, check the one response that best captures your reaction to the scenario presented. 1. Suppose that you have decided to see a play for which the admission charge is \$20 per ticket. As you prepare to purchase the ticket, you discover that you have lost a \$20 bill. Would you still pay \$20 for a ticket to see the play? Yes ____ No ____ 2. Social science researchers have conducted extensive empirical studies and concluded that the expression "absence makes the heart grow fonder " is generally true. Do you find this result surprising or not surprising? Surprising ____ Not surprising ____ 3. Suppose that the United States is preparing for the outbreak of an unusual Asian disease which is expected to kill 600 people. Two alternative programs to combat the disease have been proposed. Assume that the exact scientific estimates of the consequences of the programs are as follows: If Program A is adopted, 200 people will be saved. If Program B is adopted, there is a 1/3 probability that 600 people will be saved and a 2/3 probability that nobody will be saved. Which of the two programs would you favor? A ____ B ____ Survey 2.
