    a. Advances in scientific knowledge have predictable consequences.

    b. Advances in scientific knowledge can be beneficial to society if applied responsibly.

    c. Advances in scientific knowledge lead to few changes in society.

    d. Society is uninfluenced by advances in scientific knowledge

    Then the correct answer would be b - advances in scientific knowledge can be beneficial to society if applied responsibly. It is indeed true that when we don't apply scientific knowledge properly in different situations, this can lead to rather devastating outcomes later on.
