The accompanying underscoring pattern appears in the article “Women’s and Men’s Eating Behavior Following Exposure to Ideal-Body Images and Text” (Communications Research [2006]: 507–529). Women either viewed slides depicting images of thin female models with no text (treatment 1); viewed the same slides accompanied by diet and exercise-related text (treatment 2); or viewed the same slides accompanied by text that was unrelated to diet and exercise (treatment 3). A fourth group of women did not view any slides (treatment 4). Participants were assigned at random to the four treatindicated ments. Participants were then asked to complete a questionnaire in a room where pretzels were set out on the tables. An observer recorded how many pretzels participants ate while completing the questionnaire. Write a few sentences interpreting this underscoring pattern.
