A study reports that the abuse of bath salts (synthetic cathinones) is associated with sharp increases in body temperature. You know this means
The p value was less than alpha. 

Select A type II error was made as your answer 
A type II error was made 
Select This is a clinically significant result. as your answer 
This is a clinically significant result. 
Select The result is not statistically significant. as your answer 
The result is not statistically significant. 
As we are doing a test of independence here, and we are concluding that there is an association between the 2 variables, therefore the test is significant here which is possible only when the pvalue of the test is less than level of significance which is alpha.
Therefore pvalue is less than alpha is the correct answer here.
As we are saying the test is significant therefore we rejected the null hypothesis here but type II error occurs when the null hypothesis is not rejected, therefore a type II error was not made here. Also the result is significant here.
