Hey everybody, I'm sorry to bother you, but Science is not my thing whatsoever. Any help is greatly appreciated. The scientific evidence that scientists use in supporting or critiquing the conclusions of experiments ussually consists of a) raw data b) outlier data c) precise data d) summarized data

    hm.... well yeh...it also can be raw data as Raw data (also known as primary data) is a term for data collected from a source.

    i dont think summarized would be right because that mean they basically figured out most of the kinks and stuff

    it would have to be raw data before you summarize anything

    Recently, crops of vegetables such as lettuce and green onions have been contaminated, while they are still on the farm, with bacteria that cause food poisoning. How will science influence the way the government responds to prevent an increase in food-borne diseases? a) Because science has shown that lettuce and green onions are not nutritionally valuable, the government may pass laws that ban the sale of lettuce and green onions. b) Because science has shown that there is no way to prevent bacterial contamination, the government may pass laws that punish businesses that buy lettuce and green onions. c) Because science has shown that the washing of hands helps prevent the spread of infectious diseases among people, the government may pass laws that require hand washing by everyone who handles food. d) Because science has shown there are ways to find the source of the contamination, the government may pass laws that require farm practices that reduce the contamination of lettuce and green onions.

    My best guess is D, it seems to make the most sense but I'm not entirely sure

    Yea "D" seem the most logical to me, plus i think they already have found a way to reduce contamination

    It's likely, but I don't follow scientific discoveries as I probably should. I'm glad I'm at least understanding some of this. I really appreciate you helping check my answers and solve the problems. Thank you

    Ugh, here's another one if you're willing. The development of a new experimental method is most likely to change a theory if it makes it possible to a) analyze samples when they are frozen. b) perform the experiment in a different lab. c) obtain and analyze results more quickly. d) study a larger sample size than before. I'm feeling like it's between b and d.

    I'm wondering that about all of the options. None of them seem to matter, at least not that I can tell. I suppose I will try it and hope for the best then

    http://media.education2020.com/evresources/3209-08-05/mc024-1.jpg If the earth’s average surface temperature continues to change over the next 30 years at the same rate it changed between 1980 and 2010, the average temperature will most likely be around a) 0.2°C lower than in 1990. b) 0.6°C higher than in 2010. c) the same as it was in 1980. d) the same as it was in 2000.
