1. A scientific hypothesis can become a theory if the hypothesis is tested extensively and competing hypotheses are eliminated. A scientific hypothesis is a proposed explanation made on the basis of a reasoning without any assumption. For the hypothesis be called a scientific hypothesis, it has to be something that can be supported or refuted through carefully experimentation or observation. 2. A preliminary untested explanation that tries to explain how or why things happen in the manner observed is a scientific hypothesis. The primary trait of a hypothesis is something that can be tested and that the tests can be replicated. A hypothesis is often examined by multiple scientists to ensure the integrity and veracity of the experiment. The process can take years, and in many cases the hypothesis does not go far in the scientific method, since it is difficult to gather sufficient evidence.
