Fara's book is no ordinary account of how scientific knowledge has accumulated. Instead, Fara focuses on how science has been guided by social and political factors. Her aim is to (i)____________ the notion of science as an objective search for truth. The study is an impressive (ii)___________ the idealization of science. Yet Fara takes her argument too far by (iii)_____________ how the knowledge produced by science relates to the external world: she treats all theories as equal, regardless of whether they are supported by evidence.
Whereas unimaginative novelists were once routinely accused of simply changing the personal names in works that would otherwise have been (i)_____________, today it is more common to learn, conversely, that a genuine piece of (ii)____________ has been (iii)__________ a writer's true confessions.

In a normal distribution, the amount of the distribution that lies within 1 standard deviation of the mean is 68 percent, rounded to the nearest whole percent. A certain set of values is normally distributed with a mean of 81 and a standard deviation of 5. A value x will be randomly selected from the set.

#### Quantity A

The probability that x will be less than 76 or greater than 86

#### Quantity B

The probability that x will be between 81 and 86
