dots in Figure 1 represents...

00:44

...so let's take a closer look at Figure 1.

00:46

We can figure out what each dot represents by looking at the axes of the graph.

00:50

This is an "understand the axis" question. What good will it do now to understand

00:54

Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan?

00:57

The axis on the graph.

00:58

The dots are defined in the text for Experiments 1 and 2: each dot on the graph represents

01:02

data for an individual protein. The fold change in protein aggregation for that protein is

01:08

compared for old and young worms.

01:10

The data from Experiment 1 is plotted on the x-axis,

01:13

and the data from Experiment 2 is plotted on the y-axis.

01:17

This looks like it's an easy one. Choice A! That's it. We're done.
