(b) probably true.
(c) capable of being proved true, but not false.
(d) probably a bad idea.
(e) capable of being proved true or false by experiment.
Question 2. A reasonable order-of-magnitude estimate for the number of times that a heart beats in an average human lifetime of 70 years is
(a) 2X1013    (b) 2X1011    (c) 2X109    (d) 2X107    (e) 2X105
Question 3. In any given year, the outcome that is less likely than being struck by lightning is
(a) a fatal bicycle crash     (b) drowning     (c) choking to death     (d) winning the state lottery     (e) death by car crash

(a) 10 right    (b) 30 left    (c) 50 left    (d) 80 right    (e) 120 right
Question 5. A 50 kg crate rests on a horizontal floor. If a force of 150 N to the right is exerted on the crate but it doesn't move, then the force of friction (in N) is
