an atom is made of a positively charged nucleus surrounded by a large region in whci hscientists can predict where an electron is likey to be found.

I think this is attributed to rutherford

choices are: rutherford, wave model, thompson, dalton or bohr.

    Rutherford had no idea where the electrons were to be found. Thomson's model obviously was the pudding model and that was proved to be incorrect. Dalton didn't know about the nucleus OR electrons. That leaves just. The wave model can do this and the Bohr model can do this. I'm bothered by the question, however, for the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle does not allow us to predict the exact location of an electron. The "large region in which scientists can predict where an electron is likely to be found" sounds like statistical probability to me and that would suggest the answer as the wave model.
