Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:

I was recently hired to find the best cherry pie recipe in the state of Virginia. I found it in the kitchen of Evelyn Smith. My search began by requesting all interested cherry pie tasters to answer my newspaper ad. All respondents in the state met in a central location and tasted cherry pies. Each of 68 persons tasted the five cherry pies that were judged superior at the recent Virginia State Fair. To assure fairness, each “taste” was made on a different day so that the taste buds would not be confused. The winner? Ms. Smith’s pie! She received over 40% of the votes. Her closest competitor received 22%. Apparently, Ms. Smith has something special when it comes to cherry pies.
