A student makes a random guess on the question and is correct. 1) A) statistically significant B) not statistically significant Interpret the level of statistical significance for the event described. 2) A study of 600 college students taking Statistics 101 revealed that 58 students received the grade of A.

What does this mean in this case? 2) A) The probability that the difference occurred due to chance is less than 0.05. B) The probability of getting an A is 10% and only 9% got an A in this study. The difference is less than 5% so it is not significant. C) The probability that the difference occurred due to chance is more than 0.05. D) There is not enough information to make any conclusion.
