    A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena. Most theories that are accepted by scientists have been repeatedly tested by experiments and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomena.

    Theories are changed sometimes right? And also they do support an explanation so I would go with B !

    A *theory* is what is commonly accepted *but* it is subject to change. It can change if new information is discovered that changes the meaning of the theory. The Theory of Evolution is a good example of a theory that is not scientific. It is a guess based on findings and not observable or able to be experimented on. A *law* will never change. It is accepted as is and is known to be 100% true, such as the Laws of Force and Acceleration.
