    question

    The sentence:

    Unless we happen to be professional scientists, laboratory experiments and formulae have ceased to have any meaning for most of us.

    About "laboratory experiments and formulae", is it:

    (a) laboratory experiments + laboratory formulae

    or

    (b) laboratory experiments + formulae ?

    I think it's (b), but I'm not sure on this one...

    (b) experiments are done in laboratories, formulae are not.

    All the best, :D

    I vote for a), but I would not bet on it. In that context, I expect to find formulas in some sort of laboratory anyway.
