In an early experiment by Cannon and Washburn, Washburn swallowed a balloon so that they could measure hunger. Their conclusion was that

  1. the balloon prevented hunger by filling up the stomach.
  2. the balloon recorded hunger pangs or contractions.
  3. the balloon stopped digestion, and so nothing could be said of normal hunger.
  4. hunger had nothing to do with stomach contractions.

Answer
2. the balloon recorded hunger pangs or contractions.
