Table 6

Results for questions B1–B10 (62 participants). Questions marked with an asterisk were predicted to favor fractions because their actual values are close to fractions from scales 2–4; nearest fractions are shown in column F. Response frequencies are shown in parentheses, or unspecified if the response occurred only once.
