Read the statement and then apply it to the scenario.

Statement
In science, it is not possible to prove hypotheses right. This is not the fault of scientists and their experiments; the scientific method is only able to tell scientists if their hypotheses are incorrect.

Scenario
An interviewer doing a live news piece on a popular new diet fad is presenting the results of studies done by a science team. The scientists being interviewed show the results of their studies, which indicate that there is an increased risk of heart attacks among people who have tried the diet.

The interviewer asks the lead scientist if their work has proved that the diet fad causes heart attacks, and the scientist responds, “No, of course not.”

Which option correctly pairs the misunderstanding viewers may receive with the reason why they may have that misunderstanding?

Misunderstanding: The diet fad is safe.
Reason: The scientific method was not followed.
Misunderstanding: The diet fad is safe.
Reason: Technical jargon has been removed or simplified.
Misunderstanding: The diet fad is definitely dangerous.
Reason: The news station is practicing deliberate deception.
Misunderstanding: The diet fad is definitely dangerous.
Reason: The peer-review process was not followed.
Is it the last one?
