The correct answer is option C, New experiments can affect previous scientific explanations


The scientific theories remains constant but the logical explanation behind them may keep on changing. This is so because the first logical explanation to any scientific theory was the best possible explanation to it and was accepted by the majority of peers. But with the advancement in technology some new theories may come forward. for example – Earlier it was found that atom in the smallest unit of matter , but with the advancement in high scale microscope it was found that even atom is made of smaller particles like electron, proton etc. Thus the scientific theories get affected by new researches.
