the saltwater he finds close by and after some time he begins to feel really sick. This
is because his cells are:
a. Hypertonic and shrinking
b. Hypertonic and getting better
c. Hypotonic and getting bigger
d. Hypotonic and shrinking
2) Which of the following answer choices lists the scientific method steps in order?
I. Retesting the hypothesis
II. Drawing conclusions
III. Developing a hypothesis
IV. Collecting experimental data
V. Making observations
VI. Conducting an experiment
a. V, IV, III, II, VI, I
b. III, V, VI, IV, I, II
c. V, III, VI, IV, II, I
d. V, III, VI, IV, I, II
3) A student continuously finds himself doing bad in quizzes. He decides to conduct an
experiment where he spends time either studying the night before a quiz or half an
hour before a quiz and observes the changes in his grade for several days. Assuming,
every quiz was different from one another- He found that he scores better when he
studies the night before the quiz. In this scenario, which of the following is true?
a. Independent variable: changes in grades; dependent variable: studying night
before or half hour before exam; control variable: type of quiz
b. Independent variable: studying night before or half hour before exam, dependent
variable: changes in grade, control variable: student
c. Independent variable: studying night before or half hour before exam, dependent
variable: changes in grade, control variable: type of quiz
d. Independent variable and dependent variable: studying night before or half hour
before exam, control variable: student
