### Problem 5

Jenny took a random sample of 250 males and a separate random sample of 270 females at UCLA. She asks them whether their major is science related, math related, social science related, or other type of field. She then constructs a contingency table of gender (two rows) by major (four columns). She wants to find out whether males and females differ in their choice of major. Which of the following should she examine?

- Choose one answer.

*(a) Row percentages*

*(b) Column marginals*

*(c) Cell percentages*

*(d) Column percentages*

*(e) Cell frequencies*

*(f) Row marginals*
