Question:
Can a black hole and a white hole be connected through a worm hole.


Replies:
Be careful here!! Black holes have been observed (at least indirectly) and their properties have been modeled and calculated. On the other hand, "white holes" and "worm holes" are the conjectures of cosmological models that have not been observed (and may not even be observable) so how they behave is very tenuous at best.
