Use of conventional flu medications remains common. However, in recent years, use of Sabocin, a nonconventional herbal remedy for the flu has increased. Sabocin's effectiveness relative to conventional medications is unproven, but it is clear Sabocin is less likely to cause unpleasant side effects: Only 35 percent of people who have used Sabocin recall an unpleasant side effect, whereas 55 percent of those people recall having experienced an unpleasant side effect when they took conventional flu medication.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument?

Eleanor Roosevelt made it her business to reaffirm by word and deed her belief in equality of opportunity for all. But she was more than a symbol of the New Deal's conscience, she was also able to influence her husband, President Franklin D. Roosevelt. She sparked his conscience when necessary, and it was useful for the President to have his wife absorb some of the criticism from those who wished to maintain discriminatory policies.
Because his wife publicly advocated equal opportunity, President Roosevelt rarely felt the need, before 1935, to mention Black Americans in his public statements. Between 1935 and 1941, his references to Black Americans increased in frequency and directness, but his eye was on the balance of political forces, and he did not come out forthrightly for equal rights. Roosevelt did not directly commit himself, as his wife did, until June 1941, when he established the Fair Employment Practices Commission to supervise all defensecontract industries.

The shaded triangle in the xyplane above is bounded by the xaxis and the graphs of y=x+3 and y=($$\frac{3}{2}$$)x+3. What is the area of the triangle?

The random variable X has the standard normal distribution with a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1, as shown. Probabilities, rounded to the nearest 0.01, are indicated for the six intervals shown. The random variable Y has a normal distribution with a mean of 2 and a standard deviation of 1. Using the probabilities shown, approximately how much greater is the probability that the value of Y is between 1 and 2 than the probability that the value of X is between 1 and 2?

Each of the15 customers who arrived at a customer service desk between 9 AM and 10 AM was served in order of arrival by one of the two customer service representatives. Each representative served one customer at a time and finished with that customer before serving any other customers. The graph shows the waiting and service times, recorded to the nearest minute, for customers numbered 1 to 15.
