    Ask yourself which of the variables determins the other.

    a). Does the final grade determin test score? No test score determines grade
    so test score is the independent variable.

    b). You cannot by changing the milage control speed, but by changing
    speed you can control milage, so speed is the independent variable.

    c). Try this yourself.
