Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage.

The next time you end up on the slowest moving queue at the supermarket, don't blame your bad luck anymore. According to queuing theories, mathematicians who predict queue length and waiting times, you are not alone in such an unpleasant situation.

Queuing theory explains why there's probably no way you can always be in the fastest line. The explanation goes something like this. A supermarket tries to have enough checkout counters open to get all their customers through with minimum delay. Despite the well trained workforce and ever upgrading security systems, there are always going to be busy periods. Because supermarkets don't have the physical space to add more checkout lines. During these busier times, their system becomes overloaded. One small interruption, such as a price check or chatty customer results in a chain of reactions to affect the entire line behind them.

If there are three lines at a store, these delays will happen randomly at different checkout counters. The chances of your line being the quickest are only one and three. So you are not just imagining another line probably is moving faster than yours.
