Dear I have seen a question about Skinner box experiment that which animal did he use. He actually observed rats but the report on the practice test shows its wrong and shows the pigeon is the correct answer.

    Answer is : RAT
    Skinner showed how positive reinforcement worked by placing a hungry rat in his Skinner box. The box contained a lever on the side, and as the rat moved about the box, it would accidentally knock the lever. Immediately it did so a food pellet would drop into a container next to the lever.
