Imagine that you and your friend Bob are hanging out at Bob's house, and you see some of his favorite toys that you can try. There are three toys that you can play with.
Each toy was built with two possible actions (left vs. right) and designed so that when you perform the correct action, it will play music!
But each toy was designed differently and you don't know which action (left vs. right) will make that toy play music.
Which action would you like to try to make this toy play music?
Which toy do you want to select?
Why did you choose this toy?
Thanks for your Time!
