Your score: 0

In a study [1] in the early 2000s, students were asked, one by one, to perform a simple, repetitive task for five minutes in exchange for money. The task was to sit in front of a computer and use a mouse to drag a circle from the left side of the screen to the right side of the screen. A new circle would then appear on the left. The study measured how many objects were dragged from left to right.

The students were given different rewards. Some got 5 dollars for the job, and some got 50 cents for the job. The money was given to them before they did their job. The students receiving 5 dollars for the job dragged, on average, 159 circles.

How many circles did the students receiving 50 cents for the job drag, on average?
