dots in Figure 1 represents...
...so let's take a closer look at Figure 1.
We can figure out what each dot represents by looking at the axes of the graph.
This is an "understand the axis" question. What good will it do now to understand
Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan?
The axis on the graph.
The dots are defined in the text for Experiments 1 and 2: each dot on the graph represents
data for an individual protein. The fold change in protein aggregation for that protein is
compared for old and young worms.
The data from Experiment 1 is plotted on the x-axis,
and the data from Experiment 2 is plotted on the y-axis.
This looks like it's an easy one. Choice A! That's it. We're done.
