The options for this question are missing. The options are:
a. The experimental effect
b. The correlational approach to the study
c. The placebo effect
d. The participants becoming smarter
In research and psychology, the placebo effect refers to the phenomenon that occurs when people experience a benefit in their health after the administration of a substance with no real medical effects (an inactive substance).
In this example, in a study to determine the effect of caffeine on memory, participants receive either a caffeine pill or a sugar pill. Sugar is a substance that has no real medical effects when it comes to memory and that has no caffeine, in other words, it's an inactive substance. However, the participants that received this treatment had a small increase in memory. Therefore, they are experiencing a benefit after taking an inactive substance (the sugar pill) and this would likely be due to the placebo effect.

When all media sources report a simplified version of the environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing, with no effort to convey the hard science and complicated statistical data behind the story, ___________ is probably occurring. gatekeeping
the digital divide
The correct answer is B. Gatekeeping
Gatekeeping refers to the process in which information is summarized, filtered or reduced in a way is understood by a general audience usually because the information is published for the general public. This occurs in mass media as editors, reporters and almost all agents involved cannot include all the information and therefore need to decide on which information will be included and which would be excluded. This occurs in the case presented as all the media sources created a simplified version that can be understood by the general public rather than all the information and statistical data that would be too much to process for the public and too difficult for those without an academical background. Therefore in this case gatekeeping is occurring as information is reduced because it was going to be published for a broad audience.
