well, from the last question, we know that a theory EXPLAINS. it's also important to know that theories don't become laws. so which ones can you rule out now?
A?
good, so it's not A. could it be B? (remember that we just said that theories don't become laws...)

Other answers:

nope
okay. so now we're left with C and D.
its problably C right ?
both seem like valid answers to me actually. are you allowed to choose more than one?
no i can only give one answer
if you had to choose just one, i'd go with C becuase "scientific support" seems more credible as "evidence" than observation. but again, i think D is a pretty good answer (tell your teacher. he/she will be impressed with you :-)
WAIT
what happend ?
apparently the ability to make PREDICTIONS is an important component of a theory...
i think i'm going to change my final answer to D. :-) sorry about that. C and D are still both very good answers, but now I believe D is better.
But a theorie cant become a law
agreed. that's why i don't think it's a good question! there seem to be 2 valid answers, but you said you can only choose one.
