The most basic concepts of cell theory are that cells are the basic units of life and that all living things are made of cells. Which answer correctly explains why these concepts are the basis of a theory and not a hypothesis?
Cell theory explains how cells function rather than predicting how they function.
Cell theory has been unchanged for many decades and as a result can be accepted as fact.
Cell theory is a prediction based on observation and not a fully accepted idea.
Cell theory remains largely untested rather than being subject to testing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A hypothesis consists either of a suggested explanation. In science, a theory is a wellsubstantiated, unifying explanation for a set of verified, proven hypotheses. As opposed to theory, a hypothesis needs to be testable and falsifiable. Now, which answer correctly defines this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A tested hypothesis that works, may become part of a theory or become a theory itself. The testing should be an attempt to prove the hypothesis is wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As liquid water freezes, the molecules arrange themselves in a way that takes up more space than liquid water. What would most likely occur if the arrangement of frozen water molecules required less space than that of liquid water molecules? The density of ice would be greater than the density of liquid water, and ice would not float. Ice would form in layers, and liquid water would get trapped in between the layers. Liquid water would have a higher specific heat, making it less likely to undergo vaporization. The freezing point of water would decrease, making ice more difficult to form.
