MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question.;1) A major consumer group recently undertook a study to determine whether automobile customers;would rate the quality of cars differently that were manufactured in the U.S., Europe, or Japan. To;conduct this test, a sample of 20 individuals was asked to look at mid- range model cars made in;each of the three countries. The individuals in the sample were then asked to provide a rating for;each car on a scale of 1 to 1000.
