Can you help me understand this Psychology question?
Below is a link to a document reviewing some major points regarding research in psychology that should help you with some material we reviewed in class as well as in completing the assignment. On the last page you will find your specific instructions regarding your assignment. Don’t forget that your assignment must be electronically generated and may be turned in via Canvas or office hours on Thursday 9/5. I do not accept hand-written assignments.
*Please note: even though this assignment is titled “design an experiment” it does not mean you actually need to design your own experiment. I means that you need to read the study presented on last page of the document and answer questions about the design of the study presented there.

of the beverage, they play a video driving game in which their responses are
timed. They do not know what they are drinking nor what the purpose of the
study is, but the person administering the game does know whether and how
much alcohol they received. Using the above study, answer the following questions.
