(A) schema

Explanation
A schema is a mental rule we use to interpret our environment. Assimilation and
accommodation are steps in the process of learning described by Piaget. We first try to assimilate new information into an existing schema, then accommodate the new information by changing the schema if we need to. A syllogism is a type of logical argument, and a hypothesis is an explanation for an environmental event.
