As per our earlier conversation the control group is the set of things experimented upon that don't get the change of the experiment. In this case, it's the half of the shower sprayed with water. ===== The independent variable is the thing that is the change made by the experimenter: "Whether or not the green slime is sprayed with coconut juice" ===== The dependent variable is the outcome we measure: Whether to not the green slime goes away ===== I've leave you now to tell us what conclusion Homer should draw from the experiment.
