A hypothesis is not a definitive answers in Science. Only Scientific Laws are, which are still hard to confirm at times.
A hypothesis is a prediction, an educated one. Therefore, it is not a hypothesis because the writer states that it "requires" these things to grow, instead of saying something less definitive. They are guaranteeing it.
A is the right answer
B. hope this helped !!!
It is a well-known fact
The meaning of Hypothesis is the assumption of something probable, that is, a possibility considered valid, that can be verified so that a statement or conclusion can be made. In other words, a hypothesis cannot be a well-known fact, because it refers to an assumption and something that needs to be proved.
Hypothesis, to the Greeks, meant to refer to what served as the principle or foundation for sustaining the laws. Therefore, we have the term hypothesis as any deduction of something believable that can be verified and draw a conclusion. The term is a set of conditions that promotes the starting point for developing reasoning.
It is not a hypothesis because it is not in an "if, then, because" format.
It’s stating exactly what is going to happen with no guess and it’s not in an if,then format
Option A is correct
Any thing which is not a hypothesis is already proven or is believed to be true.
There is no case of "If" and "Then" condition.
Here in this case the knowledge of essential requirements for producing a good crop of sunflower is not a new thing. It is something which is known since a long time and also being practiced in different parts of the world efficiently.
Hence, the statement "Sunflowers require soil and plenty of sunlight and water to grow and thrive." is not a hypothesis.
So if that statement were reworded to a hypothesis it would be like “If sunflowers are planted in soil and given plenty of sunlight and water (action) it will grow and thrive (desired result).”
i have no idea if that made any sense but like thats the best way i can explain it
There is no need to call it a "hypothesis" if it is already a fact. & If it is a fact, why not just call it "fact"?
hope this helps
