a. 0 cells (0.0%) have expected count less than 5. The minimum expected count is 67.65.

Solution:
We are given, the relationship between marital status (MSTAT) and college graduation, using a chisquare test statistic result we have to conclude on the relationship between the variable.
From, Pearson Chi  square test, the 2sided pvalue is 0.023, which is less than 0.05, so there is a significant relationship between marital status and college graduation
