# 1. The availability heuristic suggests that We categorize

### Resolved Question:

1. The availability heuristic suggests that
We categorize information based on how representative it is of a stereotype.
We judge the probability of an event on the size of the competing sample.
We base the frequencies of events on the ease to which information regarding that event comes to mind.
We use others' responses to questions if they are available to us.

People use heuristics because
They save us time.
They save us cognitive energy.
They often lead to correct responses.
All of the above.

Ellen's best friend won the lottery with the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. Now, Ellen buys a lottery ticket every day choosing these same numbers, because she is convinced that she too will win. What error in judgment is Ellen making?
The likelihood of the same numbers winning again is significantly less than other number combinations.
Rare but highly memorable events that come to mind easily act so as to increase our beliefs they will happen again even when they don't.
Ellen is mistakenly relying on the consistency heuristic and should pick different numbers each day.
Ellen is basing her decisions on too large a sample size.
