Sarah has noticed at work that office meetings held in the late morning go more quickly than those scheduled after lunch. She tells her boss she'll bet that, if he holds his meetings at 11a.m., the group will spend more time on the agenda and less discussing unrealated trivial matters. Sarah has just stated a/an:

a. operational definition
b. theory
c. hypothesis
d. confirmation bias

I think it's either b or d.
