To determine

**To identify:** The independent and dependent variables.

Explanation

**Given info:**

The study states the two variables inhaled oxytocin and trustee.

**Justification:**

The independent variable is the variable that is manipulated by the researcher. In behavioural research, the independent variable usually consists of the two (or more) treatment conditions to which subjects are exposed...
