    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is the second option: "Dr. Johnson, are we going to conduct an experiment today?"

The sentence is a response to someone asking if the speaker minds if they join, and the answer is that the speaker does not mind.

By separating each item with commas and using the appropriate punctuation, it ensures that all the necessary equipment is included and properly identified. Additionally, the use of the word "and" before the last item (a gram of sodium chloride) indicates that it is part of the list and not a separate instruction.
