A total of 30 students of Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris undergraduates volunteered to do this experiment, which is consist of 22 female students and 8 male students.

Sunnan K.K. and Peter D.B. (1973) suggested that picture and word lists were manipulated in a retroactive inhibition design and play a main role as recall in memory. Retroactive inhibition was demonstrated for both picture and word material, and the study involving sixty undergraduates of both sexes at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The results also suggest that pictures produce less interference than words. Another similar study that seventy undergraduate volunteer in University of Illinios, Urbana participated which conducted by Graeme H. W and James M. R., (1969). Their findings in stimulus context and retroactive inhibition in free recall found that contextual factors contribute to the RI resulting from similar categorization of materials in free-recall leaming. Retroactive Inhibition in Memory Method Participants A total of 30 students of Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris undergraduates volunteered to do this experiment, which is consist of 22 female’s students and 8 male students. In this experiment, we just have two group of respondent which is control group and experimental group. So, 30 students of Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris that who are volunteered to be the respondent was divided into two groups which are 15 students in control group and 15 students in experimental group. The respondents are selected by using a convenience sample. Which is the convenience sample is a matter of making what
