What's the difference between a hypothesis and a theory?

2 Answers

The hypothesis is an unproven statement; that can be tested. On the other hand, the theory is a scientifically tested and proven explanation of fact or event. Hypothesis relies on suggestions, prediction, possibility or projects whereas a theory is supported by evidence and is verified.

A hypothesis is a testable statement that can be proven or disproven using the scientific method. A theory is a concept that has been observed and tested with consistency, yielding the same reliable results each time.
