Researchers determined that 60 tissues is the average number of tissues used during a cold. Suppose a random sample of 100 Kleenex users yielded the following data on the number of tissues used during a cold: [pic] = 52, s = 22. Suppose the test statistic does fall in the rejection region at [pic] = 0.05. Which of the following conclusions is correct? a. At [pic] = 0.05, there is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the average number of tissues used during a cold is 60 tissues. b. At [pic] = 0.05, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the average number of tissues used during a cold is 60 tissues. c. At [pic] = 0.05, there is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the average number of tissues used during a cold is not 60 tissues. d. At [pic] = 0.10, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the average number of tissues used during a cold is not 60
