Question Description

I’m studying and need help with a question to help me learn.

A researcher conducted an experiment on the effects of a new drug on depression.  The researcher had a control group that received nothing, a placebo group, and an experimental group that received the drug.  A depression inventory that provided a measure of depression on a 50 point scale was used (50 indicates that an individual is very high on the depression variable).  The ANOVA summary table appears next, along with the mean depression score for each condition.
