    A friend told you that watering plants with seawater would make them grow faster than when watering them with freshwater. You decided to make an experiment to test her hypothesis. You decided to bring two plant pots (Pot C and  Pot T), Pot C acting as a control. Your experiment showed that plants watered by seawater dried up and died quickly while plants watered by freshwater continued to grow. Therefore your friend’s hypothesis (is):
    • A. 

      Cannot be tested

    • B. 

      Correct

    • C. 

      Incorrect
