**CFA Practice Question**

A student is interested in whether there is a relationship between gender and major at her college. She randomly sampled some men and women on campus and asked them if their major was part of the natural sciences (NS), social sciences (SS), or humanities (H). Her results appear in the table below. What would be the expected frequency of women in social sciences based on this table?

A. 13.12

B. 14.75

C. 10.22

**Explanation:**The expected value of women in social sciences is the product of the total number of women and the total number of social science majors divided by the total number of participants. (22*34)/57 = 13.12
