Based on a sample of 250 people, she obtains the following 99% confidence interval for the        population proportion p:

0.113 < p < 0.171

Which of the statements below is a valid interpretation of this confidence interval?

lies between 0.113 and 0.171.

Select one:

1. Do not reject the null hypothesis. There is insufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the proportion of students smoking is the same at all four colleges.
2. Reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the proportion of students smoking is the same at all four colleges.
3. Do not reject the null hypothesis. There is in sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that the proportion of students smoking is the same at all four colleges.
