    The correct answer is option A, that is, Caribou calf survival is directly associated with annual rainfall amounts.

    A hypothesis refers to the suggested explanation or a supposition developed on the basis of limited proof as an initiating point for further study.  

    A hypothesis refers to an expectation of what one is going to investigate. Thus options B and D are not applicable, also C has nothing to do with climate. Thus, the correct answer will be option A.
