What is a hypothesis? A hypothesis is basically a educated guess on the prediction of something that will happen with little or maybe no information. A hypothesis will be proved in the future. To choose between 2 hypothesis, one may argue that whichever one that looks more correct. A hypothesis with too much detail may be proved in correct, but one that is too broad could be made up with anyone. Occam’s razor says that if there is two explanations for an occurrence, the one that requires the least speculation is usually better.
