FL 3 #6 P/S

The answer says that the study's limitation is that it doesn't use a clinical population. However, wouldn't this create a confounding variable since the study would only include people with an OCR-R high enough to receive treatment and a control group?

The point of the study was to examine obsessive compulsiveness, so having a clinical population would make the study more accurate. It would not be a confounding variable, just as using a population of cancer patients to test a cancer drug would not be a confounding variable.
