  • Evolutionary theories often emphasize that humans have adapted (#2590)
    Evolutionary theories often emphasize that humans have adapted to their physical environment. One such theory hypothesizes that people should spontaneously follow a 24-hour cycle of sleeping and waking-even if they are not exposed to the usual pattern of sunlight. To test this notion, eight paid volunteers were placed(individually) in a room in which there was no light from the outside and no clocks or other indications of time. They could turn the lights on and off as they wished. After a month in the room, each individual tended to develop a steady cycle. Their cycles at the end of the study were as follows: 25,27,25,23,25,26, and 25. Using the 5% level of significance, what should we conclude about the theory that 24 hours is the natural cycle?
