    A law would be done after many experiments are performed yielding the same results like the Law of thermodynamics. A theory would be made with a possibility of something occurring as in like the Big Bang theory. A bias is just a prejudice in favour or against one thing which doesn't make sense in this case. A hypothesis is you questioning something and doing an experiment to see how your results turn out. She most likely made a hypothesis before performing the experiment
