In a study that compared twins to unrelated pairs of students, who were the same age and sex, the unrelated pairs of students were
A)almost as alike as the twins.
B)much less alike than the twins.
C)more alike than the twins.

In a study that compared twins to unrelated pairs of students, who were the same age and sex, the unrelated pairs of students were almost as alike as the twins.These unrelated pairs had similar political beliefs, musical interests, religious preferences, job histories, hobbies, and favorite foods.These unrelated students were so similar because
A)the students in the study actually were similar in their genetic make-up.
B)they were selected through procedures that were biased in favor of the middle class.
C)people of the same age and sex live in the same historical times and select from similar societal options.
D)the pairs of twins were so dissimilar that the unrelated pairs of students appeared very similar to each other in comparison.
Because people of the same age and sex live in the same historical times and select from similar societal options,
A)unrelated pairs of students of the same age and sex will appear very dissimilar on most traits.
B)you will find several children with the same first name in nearly every elementary classroom.
C)children in today's elementary classrooms are significantly more diverse than the children in the elementary schools of 50 years ago.
D)twins reared apart will always be significantly more similar than unrelated pairs of students.
The "amazing similarities" of identical twins may be a result of
A)the fallacy of positive instances.
B)deliberate deceit by the twins.
C)deliberate deceit by the researchers.
D)the Barnum effect.
