Question 11 (B) Important

 The question he tried to answer was simple: What is the purpose of the twelve tiny gold spots on a monarch pupa?

 “Everyone assumed the spots were just ornamental,” Ebright said.

 “But Dr Urquhart didn’t believe it.”

 To find the answer, Ebright and another excellent science student first had to build a device that showed that the spots were producing a hormone necessary for the butterfly’s full development. This project won Ebright first place in the county fair and entry into the International Science and Engineering Fair. There he won third place for zoology. He also got a chance to work during the summer at the entomology laboratory of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. (The Making of a Scientist)

State TRUE or FALSE.

None of the terms (a) -(d) below, can be applied to the question - What is the purpose of the twelve tiny gold spots on a monarch pupa?

(a) A hypothesis - a proposed explanation for a phenomenon

(b) An assumption - something that is taken for granted or assumed to be true without

proof

(c) A premise - a proposition that forms the basis of an argument

(d) A theory - a well-substantiated explanation for a natural phenomenon

Answer:

TRUE

Step-by-Step explanation:

  • Considering the question "What is the purpose of the twelve tiny gold spots on a monarch pupa?" as a standalone statement, we can conclude:
  • (a) A hypothesis: The statement itself is not a proposed explanation, but the starting point for investigation.❌
  • (b) An assumption : The statement is not assuming anything to be true without proof; it's a question.❌
  • (c) A premise : The statement is not a proposition forming the basis of an argument; it's a question to be explored.❌
  • (d) A theory : The statement is not a well-substantiated explanation for a natural phenomenon; it is simply asking a question.❌

None of these terms can be applied to the question itself, so the statement is:

TRUE✅
