Most Common mistakes from test. 4e and 6d • In her promotional practices, a queen ant has been accused of discriminating against ants with short antennae. During the preceding year, six workers were up for promotion. Four of them, with antenna lengths (in mm) of 65, 71, 72, and 73, were promoted. Two workers, with antenna lengths of 63 and 68, were bypassed for promotion. e. Is the evidence of antenna length discrimination relatively strong or relatively weak? Justify your conclusion.
