Thomas’s team, the Rays, have gone undefeated this basketball season winning ten out of ten games. They will probably win the state championship game next week, since in the past every team that has gone undefeated the whole season has ended up winning the state championship game.

C. having gone undefeated the whole season affects the likelihood that the Rays will win the state championship
D. having gone undefeated the whole season affects the likelihood that they will go undefeated next season as well
