The loss of bone mass density (BMD) in men and women can be reduced by drug treatments. A pharmaceutical company has developed a new calcium supplement, which claims to reduce the loss of BMD. Volunteers who have been diagnosed with loss of bone mass density and who are currently not on medication or calcium supplements will be recruited to participate in a study. It is known that men and women experience different average losses of BMD.

A.Explain how you would carry out a completely randomized experiment for the study. B.Describe an experimental design that would improve the design in part (A) by incorporating blocking. C.Can the experimental design in part (B) be carried out in a double-blind manner? Explain.
