b. models are useful only if they can be used to explain or make predictions about something

For the writer, scientific models are paradigms of set of patterns that is assumed to happen in a particular situation or circumstance which is why it was created and modeled, to explain a certain phenomenon. Take for instance the biogeochemical cycle model –water cycle. The water cycle model involves the different process which was observed happen as the current cycle has been experimented and predicted to happen again with the same process.
