Jenna is a scientist in a chemistry lab. Her experiment did not support her current theory. What should she do next?'

She should do the experiment again and if it still doesnt support her thoery then thats when she should change her theory

She could rethink her method and try many times and it might work.

Hope this helps!

Verify the data by running the experiment several more times is the correct answer.

Explanation:

If Jenna wants to support her current theory, it is necessary that she checks every step of the procedure at least one more time. To make sure that she doesn't miss anything, it is necessary that she repeats the experiment one or several times in order to  verify that she is following the procedure as she should.

The current theory must have been based on other experiments, so if she received opposite results, then we have many experiments with opposite results. In order to verify whether her results were not a result of some kind of error she should replicate the experiment, so the correct answer is:
Verify the data by running the experiment several more times.

C. Verify the data by running the experiment several more times.

Explanation:

By completing the experiment a few more times she will be able to verify if the data is actually incorrect.

Jenna should: Verify the data by running the experiment several more times

Explanation:

Verifying your data can be done by running multiple trials to ensure that the results that come out was not due to other errors such as calculation mistakes, procedural errors, and the like. This will rule out other extraneous factors that could have unintentionally influenced the outcome of the experiment.

The correct answer is ' Verify the data by running the experiment several more times'.

Explanation:

The data and observation collected by the Jenna from her experiment are not in support with her current theory . In order to get more clear picture regarding her theory she should again repeat the experiment several times under similar and different conditions.

By repeating the experiment several times she will get to know the errors involved in her experiment, precaution required during, after or before the experiment.

And hence this will lead her to the clear and broader sense of her current theory she's working on.
