5). He is not too sure what this result means. Is it high, and is a high value incriminating for the suspect? Is it low, and is a low value incriminating? In fact, a low value is more incriminating than a high value. He thinks a little more and remembers that the genotypes not only match but also are both of type BB. The frequencies of genotypes AA and AB are not relevant. 5). He is still not too sure what this means but feels that it is more representative of the information available to him than the previous probability, since it takes account of the actual genotypes of the crime stain and the suspect.

2). It is not possible to order blood groups and say that one is larger or smaller than another. However, there are other qualitative data which do have a natural ordering, such as the level of burns on a body. There is not a numerical measure of this but the level of burns may be classified as first, second or third degree, for example. Qualitative data which have no natural ordering are known as nominal data. Qualitative data to which a natural ordering may be attached are known as ordinal data.
