simply assert that chickens cannot fly.

3. Ms. Sue

That answer has nothing to do with a scientific hypothesis.

4. SW

so which is it?

5. Ms. Sue

Do you know what "assert" means?

How would you try to PROVE that chickens can fly?

6. SW

would it be to ask someone or look for a chicken that can fly. they can fly but to a short distance from the roof top of a house to ground but not in great distance.

7. SW

to assert means to confirm

8. Ms. Sue

Right. Show a chicken flying would be the scientific way to prove this.

9. SW

ok, then i think it would be to look for a chicken that can fly to prove them wrong

10. Ms. Sue

Right.

11. SW

thanks.

12. Ms. Sue

You're welcome.
