Here are your potential answers…
Looks like we’ve been asked to choose which
of the four possible answers best summarizes the scientists’ hypothesis.
Let’s take a peek:
Option A, the waggle dance is a type of mating ritual.
Found on jdate or bdate maybe.
Nope, not in this species, but we know a few folks who think it’s great.
B says “The waggle dance produces some type of airborne chemical signal for other honey bees”
In fact, that’s precisely what the scientists hypothesized.
Well, what about C and D?
“The waggle dance is only done by honeybees”
and “the waggle dance is only done in the hive”?
Neither of those were the hypothesis. Not even close to the right answer.
So there we have it, B’s our answer. B, as in…Wait for it…
Waaaaait… <whispers> Bees.
