Answers

The question is incomplete, the complete question is;

Jia observes that adding a solution of sodium hydroxide to a clear liquid turns the liquid pink. She makes a hypothesis about why the liquid changed color.

Which characteristic is least important for her hypothesis to have?

A)ability to be tested

B)based on the opinion of her classmates

C)ability to be proven incorrect

D)based on her current knowledge

B)based on the opinion of her classmates

Explanation:

A hypothesis is a supposition or tentative explanation put forward based on minimal evidence. It sometimes sets the pace for further investigation.

Hypothesis is always based on empirical observation and not on popular opinion, hence the opinion of Jia's classmates is least important in Jia's formulation of a hypothesis.

As Jia is performing experiments by her own, so she can make the decisions or hypothesis based on her own observations and knowledge.

so for her hypothesis it is immaterial that what her classmates think or her hypothesis should not be based on the opinion of her classmates.

A leaf hangs from a branch 12 feet in the air. It falls to the ground at a rate of 0.25 feet per second. Which graph could represent the leaf’s height in feet as a function of time, in seconds, after leaving the branch?Explanation:

Option (B) is the correct answer.

Explanation:

When we are conducting an experiment then we should apply our own knowledge, so that we could become able to come to the conclusion or hypothesis on our own.

Or if we are in doubt then we should consult our respective teacher or guide so that we should be on the right path.

Therefore, we can conclude that characteristic which is least important for Jia's hypothesis is that her hypothesis is based on the opinion of her classmates.
