Re: At the atomic scale, all matter exhibits properties commonly associate [#permalink]
Is the answer for #1 A because it states “findings” of the experiment in the question itself? Otherwise, I feel like you could make an argument for answer C, but understand that answer A is more objective in that sense

If a beam of light passes through two narrow slits and is projected onto a screen behind the slits, a pattern of light and dark fringes can be observed.

C cannot be inferred.

I hope this helps

summary:

matter behave as wave and particle, 2 experiments were shown, which denotes that matter as as a wave then Einstein gave some credence to newton's hypothesis. In between Young compared his experiment with that of water ripple phenomenon.

A1: (A)
E and D were not mentioned on the para
C was given by Einstein, young was showing the wavelike properties of matter
B - Waves might cancel or amplify, depending upon the scenario

A2: (B) - Young compared his experiment with that of water ripple effect and said the waves might add or amplify

B shows possibility and not certainty, so can be answer. While A incorporates predict ability which us not supported in the passage

If someone doesn't know the meaning of slits, crests or troughs it is IMPOSSIBLE to even attempt to understand, it's a dastardly paragraph, should be included in hardest of questions.

Below was my approach for Q.1

Which of the following best summarizes the findings of Young’s experiment, as described in the passage? ​

A​ The waves from independent light sources interact with one another in predictable patterns. ​- Yes. Best option among the rest. Although, I feel an apt summary of the finding would be that light sources have properties of wave.
B​ Two light sources can cancel each other out, creating the observed dark fringes. ​ - Eliminated this option because the passage states that the waves of the light sources can cancel each other out, and not the light sources themselves. Moreover, I felt the option doesn't represent the summary of Young's experiment. The summary of Young's experiment was that light sources have wave like properties.
C​ Light exhibits properties of both particles and waves. ​- Eliminated this as Young's experiement demosntrated only wave like properties of light, not particle like properties; that comes later in the passage
D​ Newton’s theory was permanently debunked. ​- Not correct becaue Newton's theory was not permanently discredited.
E​ Newton’s theory was correct all along. - Not what Young's experiment deals with.

For Q.2. I felt only options B and D came close. I eliminated option D because as per the passage the brightness would be caused by combination of waves of light. Young's experiement doesn't say anything about particles.
