Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is kind of ambiguous, since a placebo works under two conditions: 1. The people that you give the placebo do not know that it is a placebo , i.e. they think they are taking a real pharmaceutical drug 2. The placebo does nothing , i.e. it is not a drug From the experimental setup, we know that condition 2. is met with the patch of 50 people that take a fake prescription. However, we do not know if they were told that this is a fake drug. Even tho some recent studies show that the placebo effect still works if the patients know about it, the wording of the question is sort of unclear. I think you should probably with C. still
