the role of prediction in scientific method

Post by missy42 » Sat May 02, 2009 9:22 pm

Can anybody help me with this question?

Making predictions based on your hypothesis is an important step in most scientific inquiries because they:

a. show what the conclusions will be beforehand so that resources are never wasted
b. describe every step that will be taken in any experiment you may conduct
c. state the scientific observation more clearly
d. reiterate what the hypothesis is to make it easier to understand
e. provide a direction for your experiments that will more clearly connect your conclusions to your hypothesis

I think the answer is d ...but I am not sure......

That isn't what I would have chosen - could you tell us why you thought the answers you DIDN'T choose were wrong?
