1. Hypotheses can only be tested by doing experiments.
A) True

2. Let’s say you feel very strongly that cigarette smoke does not increase the probability of getting cancer, and you base your view on something you read on the Internet. This is a good example of a(n):
A) observation
B) hypothesis.
C) theory.

3. Many salmon return to the place where they were born to lay eggs. You hypothesize that they use visual cues to find their way back. To test your hypothesis, you blind salmon and then examine whether or not they are able to return to their birthplace. You find that they are unable to find their way back. From this experiment, you:
A) have proved your hypothesis.
B) have rejected your hypothesis.
C) supported your hypothesis.
D) can’t determine whether your hypothesis is supported or not.
E) developed a theory about the role of vision in salmon navigation.

 

4. In the 1600s, Francesco Redi demonstrated that living organisms come from other living organisms. However, it would be inaccurate to say that Redi supported his hypothesis because:
A) his experiment only investigated a single kind of meat.
B) his experiment was done so long ago.
C) his experiment was based on observations.
D) his experiment only investigated a single organism.
E) his experiment didn’t have the proper controls.

 

5. Which of the following CORRECTLY reflects the process of science?
A) Observation  hypothesis formulation  question  experiment  prediction
B) Observation  question  hypothesis formulation  experiment  support or refute hypothesis
C) Observation  question  hypothesis formulation  experiment  prove or disprove hypothesis
D) Observation  question  experiment  hypothesis formulation  prove or disprove hypothesis
E) Observation  question  experiment  hypothesis formulation  support or refute hypothesis

 

6. An explanation supported by a large body of observations and experimentation is referred to as a(n):
A) prediction.
B) theory.
C) hypothesis.
D) supposition.
E) investigation.

 

7. Observations allow scientists to draw tentative explanations called hypotheses.
A) True
B) False

 

8. What is a hypothesis?
A) the same thing as an unproven theory
B) a tentative explanation that can be tested by experiments
C) a verifiable observation
D) an experiment that leads to a prediction
E) None of the other answer options is correct.

 

9. When carrying out a controlled experiment, it is important to:
A) change multiple variables at once to see the full effect of the variables.
B) subject different groups to different conditions.
C) change only one variable at a time.
D) All of these choices are correct.

 

10. A hypothesis is considered a theory when the:
A) results of a single experiment support the hypothesis.
B) hypothesis has been revised many times.
C) results of several experiments do not support the hypothesis.
D) results of several experiments support the hypothesis.
