A scientist is studying the effects of growth hormone in vertebrates. This hormone, as its name suggests, promotes protein synthesis and growth in tissues throughout the body. The scientist decides to use mice that have been genetically engineered to overproduce growth hormone. Using the mice, the scientist aims to test the effectiveness of a new drug intended to block the hormones’ receptors, preventing it from interacting with target cells.

If the drug works, the scientist expects that her experimental treatment group will
Select Option stop growinggrow faster than normalgrow normally
, while her positive control (untreated mice with the same genetic defect) will
Select Option stop growinggrow faster than normalgrow normally
and end up
Select Option bigger thansmaller thanthe same size as
normal mice.
