    Default responded twice as much

    1-The children in the second group responded twice as much as the ones in the first group to the stimulus.

    Does this mean that
    a-the strength of their response was higher than the strength of the response of the cats in the first group
    or that
    b-the number of their responses were higher. (maybe they responded twice every time)

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Default Re: responded twice as much

    It depends what the stimulus was. If they were asked questions, I'd go for B and think that the first group were lazy, but if they were given electric shocks, I'd go for A.
