Some students wanted to test which acid was most effective at preventing hornwonns from feeding on tomato plants.The students sprayed salicylic acid on one group of 15 tomato plants and jasmonic acid
on a second group of 15 tomato plants. Then students placed one homworm, with a mass of 30 to 35 mg, on each tomato plant. The students recorded the mass of the homworms after one week. The table shows the results of their investigation.
Which of these should the students do to make their conclusion more scientifically valid?
