Final Answer :
B
Explanation :
In a controlled experiment, the group that is exposed to the variable being studied is called the experimental group, and the group not being exposed is called the control group. Therefore, option B is the correct answer. Option A is incorrect as the control group is not the same as the sample group. Option C and D are also wrong because they do not relate to the experimental setup.
