10. A report of a clinical trial of a new drug •for herpes simplex II versus a placebo noted that the new drug gave a higher proportion of success than the placebo. The report ended with the statement: chisq = 4.72; p <0.05. In light of this information, we may conclude that (A) fewer than one in 20 will fail to benefit from the drug (B) the chance that an individual patient will fail to benefit is less than 0.05 (C) if the drug were effective, the probability of the reported finding is less than one in 20 (D) if the drug were ineffective, the probability of the reported finding is less than 0.05 (E) the null hypothesis is false please explain
