plants in two identical rooms and you notice the plant that is in

room. You are wondering about the reason and you try to identify
all possible variables or conditions that may affect the plant
growth. You see that both plants get the same amount of light,
water and nutrients. They are also in the same room temperature.

people's conversation has something to do with the difference in
You decide to perform an
experiment to find out if sound affects plant growth.
