5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an eliciting stimulus that functions to select environment-behavior relations
    (1)
  2. responses that 1. are less reliably evoked by antecedent stimuli than respondents, 2. the antecedent stimulus is not well specified, and 3. which generally produce eliciting consequences
    (3)
  3. the difference between ongoing behavior before and immediately following presentation of an eliciting stimulus
    (1)
  4. the occurrence of two events with a very short time interval between them
    (2)
  5. behavioral complexity is best understood as outcome of selection mechanisms operating in the individual's environment
    (2)
