    Correct Answer
    C. Observation of a pheonomeon, a question, a hypothesis, expermentation, its successful or not successful
    Explanation
    This answer describes the correct sequence of steps in the scientific approach of developing a theory. It starts with the observation of a phenomenon, which leads to asking a question about it. Based on this question, a hypothesis is formulated. The next step involves conducting an experiment to test the hypothesis, and the outcome of the experiment determines whether the hypothesis is successful or not. If the hypothesis is successful, the process continues, but if it is not successful, a new hypothesis is formulated and the experimentation process starts again.
