Introduction      Data Representation      Research Summaries      Conflicting Viewpoints      Learn More

Science is a social process- in the absence of definitive data, different scientists can construct alternative hypotheses and reach conflicting conclusions about the causes and implications of natural phenomena. On this question type, you're given two or three short passages that describe conflicting scientific viewpoints on a specific issue (once again, drawn from high school level biology, physics, chemistry, and earth/space science).

You'll be asked to compare the different viewpoints and understand how each one tries to account for the available data. Some questions ask you to describe how someone holding one viewpoint might criticize another viewpoint, or what predictions the contending theories would make about a new experiment.
