  1. Disagree. How is the student testing his hypothesis? He is just asking questions.

  6. You're welcome, T.

  7. PsyDAG has been a tutor on Jiskha for many years.

  8. I agree with PsyDAG and Ms. Sue. He is gathering data. I think C is incorrect. He hasn't postulated a hypothesis at this point.

  9. It would make sense that he's gathering data but my school said that was wrong.

  10. Three of us experienced tutors -- two with PhD degrees -- agree that A is correct.

    We find many of these online school answers are wrong.

  11. Ohh okay
