You are the lead investigator for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.  You are currently working on two similar accident cases involving tractor trailers from the same company.  In both cases the trailers of the trucks are locked and unable to be opened.  Accident 1While traveling at 55 mph on the Interstate the truck collided with stopped traffic. Upon hitting the stopped cars the truck damaged 5  of the stopped cars.Accident 2While traveling at 55 mph on the interstate the truck collided with stopped traffic.  Upon hitting the stopped cars the truck damaged 10 of the stopped cars.In both cases the drivers paperwork indicated they were carrying the same type of cargo, but did not indicate the amount of cargo they were carrying.  The roadway was dry and there was no indication the truck drivers ever applied the brakes.Based on the evidence given and your knowledge of work, you can conclude...
• A.

Both trucks were carrying same amount of cargo.

• B.

There is not enough information to make any conclusion

• C.

The truck from accident 1 was carrying half as much cargo as the truck in accident 2.

• D.

The truck from accident 2 was carrying half as much cargo as the truck from accident 1.

During the course of a baseball game, a pitcher for Team A was consistently throwing fast balls at 95 mph.The coach of Team A thinks his pitcher is the best pitcher for this game because he has consistent speed  Player #4 for Team B goes to bat four times during the game.  The coach of Team B thinks #4 is his best player because he swings the bat the same way each time but his bat speed varies.  Here are player #4's batting results:      1st at bat - ball hit into the infield (20 feet from home plate)   2nd at bat - ball hit over the infielder's head (60 feet from home plate)   3rd  at bat - ball hit over the outfielder's head (180 feet from home plate)   4th at bat  - ball hit over the outfield fence (540 feet from home plate)Using the data provided what is the best conclusion you can draw?
• A.

Player #4's bat speed decreased with each at bat.

• B.

Player #4's bat speed increased by a factor of 3 with each at bat

• C.

Player #4's bat speed increased with each at bat.

• D.

There is not enough data to draw any conclusion with the data provided Back to top
