In studies about new medicines, researchers usually give one group of patients the medicine that is designed to treat an illness. They give another group of patients a placebo, which is taken the same way as the medicine but does not actually contain the ingredients of any medicine. Different medicines are tested in different experiments, but the placebos usually contain the same non-medical ingredients. If both groups of patients are healed, then researchers cannot be sure whether the medicine caused improvement, but if the group given the medicine is healed while the group given the placebo remains ill, researchers can conclude that the medicine causes the illness to go away.

In medical experiments, which group receives placebos?

the experimental group

the control group

both the experimental and control groups

neither the experimental nor control group

    In medical experiments, Control group recieves the placebos.

    Explanation:

    A control group in an experiment is that group which receives all the factors that are present in the experimental Group except for the factor which is being tested. In medical experiments the efficiency a medicine or treatment is tested. Placebos contain same non medical components and are also taken in very similar way as the medicines. Here the factor tested is the medical ingredient that is absent in the placebo. Thus placebo is recieved by control group.
