Can someone check my answer, please? :) 1. One way in which experimental research differs from observational research is that only experimental research can *show cause and effect *test a hypothesis <<< *produce scientific results *support a theory I was caught between A & B, but I'm thinking B?

The key is in "show". Here it is a synonym for "demonstrate". How would you demonstrate something if you ware just observing?

I think it is B because we do an experimental research to test the hypothesis right? And besides by using the observational hypothesis we can't test the hypothesis.

To reply to this question, I will try to apply a method. I'll wonder for each eventual answer: 1/ if observation can 2/ if experimenting can. *show cause and effect --> I think you can see causes and effects by observing. For instance, you show your dog a sausage (cause), and it salivates (effect), like in the Pavolov experience. *test a hypothesis ---> To test hypothesis, you need experimenting you can't test hypothesis just by observing. *produce scientific results ---> To produce scientific results, you need to test, to experiment. *support a theory ---> you have to make a theory and test it, so I think you need experimenting. I'm not sure of my answers, but I'm sure the method is good. Try it.

So my answers are, experimenting is necessary for: - testing an hypothesis - producing scientific results - supporting a theory.

Maybe it's all the answers, if the word "show" means demonstrate. English is my second language, so I've some doubt. But you have the method, try.

It is a horrible question. B is the most likely answer, but even that could be done via observations.
