    Plant A: Gamma Rays (Rad/day) is 5. Water (mL/week) 50. Sunlight (hours/day) 0. Height (cm) 4. Plant B: Gamma Rays (Rad/day) is 10. Water (mL/week) 50. Sunlight (hours/day) 2. Height (cm) 7. Plant C: Gamma Rays (Rad/day) is 15. Water (mL/week) 50. Sunlight (hours/day) 5. Height (cm) 10. The scientist came to the conclusion that the hypothesis was incorrect. Why is the scientist's conclusion flawed? A. The scientist's conclusion is flawed because the height of the plants changed and, therefore, the experiment is not controlled. B. The scientist's conclusion is flawed because the amount of gamma rays changed and, therefore, the experiment is not controlled. C. The scientist's conclusion is flawed because the number of hours of sunlight changed and, therefore, the experiment is not controlled. D. The scientist's conclusion is flawed because the amount of water was not changed and, therefore, the experiment is not controlled.
