Solution

The correct option is B theorem
Statements that are neither proved nor disproved are called conjectures (hypothesis). Mathematical discoveries often start as conjectures and once proved to be true is called a theorem. A theorem is proved by a logical chain of steps. Proof of a theorem is an argument that establishes the truth of the theorem beyond doubt.
