Because of the outbreak of the coronavirus, students of UM are allowed to opt for Pass/Fail grade for courses they enroll in the second semester of 2019/2020. An instructor of ISOM2002 believes that there will be more than 35% of the students in the course choosing this option. A random sample of 40 students of ISOM2002 reveals that 16 of them prefer to take the Pass/Fail option. What would be the two hypotheses if we want to test the instructor’s belief?

Select one:

a. H0: π ≤ 0.40 and H1: π > 0.40

b. H0: π ≥ 0.35 and H1: π < 0.35

c. H0: π ≥ 0.40 and H1: π < 0.40

d. H0: π ≤ 0.35 and H1: π > 0.35
