2.      (25 points) A researcher is interested in the effects of sleep deprivation and caffeine intake on mood. Participants were randomly assigned to a sleep condition (normal or deprived) and a caffeine condition (0 cups, 2 cups, or 4 cups). After the manipulations, mood was measured (such that higher numbers indicated better mood). The results were as follows:

 

               Normal Condition                            Deprived Condition

            0 cups  2 cups  4 cups                          0 cups  2 cups  4 cups
