Question

A weight loss clinic keeps records of patient attendance at scheduled appointments each year. A record of whether

the patient's weight loss goal was met is shown below, in which the relationship between meeting or not meeting the goal is sorted by how consistently the patient attended appointments during a six-month window. 




Which of the following gives the best evidence of an association between patients attending more than 75% of appointments and meeting or exceeding their weight loss goals? A total of 116 patients met or exceeded their goals out of 270 total patients.

 A greater proportion of patients met or exceeded their weight loss goal when attending more than 75% of their appointments  compared with those who attended fewer than 75% of appointments .

 The combination of attending more than 75% of appointments and meeting or exceeding the weight loss goal was one of the highest occurring in the table.

 A total of 99 patients who attended fewer than 75% of their appointments did not meet their weight loss goals.
