hm... in psychology unit 4 checkpoints book... questions 1.38,1.39, and 1.40 in memory, on page 19

Somethings seriosuly wrong with the answers in the back of the book. lol

Im not 100% sure about 1.38, but im DEFINATELY sure that the books wrong about the other two

Ill type em out for ya:

1.38:
John travels on planes frequently for business. Each time he sits in a different seat. On his most recent flight, John leaves his seat to use the toilet. John's ability to recall where his seat is when he returns from the toilet relies mainly on his:
A-Semantic Memory.
B-Procedural Memory.
C-Episodic Memory.
D-Sensory Memory.

I say : C
Book say: B

1.39:
According to semantic network theory:
A-Information moves from sensory, to short term, to long term memory.
B-Information in long term memory is stored and organised according to meaningful groupings.
C-Visual material is processed by the visuo-spatial sketchpad.
D-Procedural memories are forgotten more readily than semantic memories.

I say B,
book says D


1.40:
Poppy has a memory of a mouse biting her in kindergarten. She remembers it's white colour and her terror when it started to climb over her new red shoes. This memory is classified as:
A-Semantic
B-Sensory
C-Procedural
D-Episodic

I said D
Book says C



Now... i dont know, i thought the answers were obvious
So first of all beware when you correct your checkpoints revision, and also... can someone PLEASE confirm that im not going insane, surely the guy writing the answers just had a temporary brain fart?!
