Assuming the null hypothesis is that only​ 50% have a job​ offer, a test statistic of z​ = 2.44 was found. When testing at the​ 5% significance​ level, which is the most appropriate​ conclusion?   A. There is sufficient evidence to conclude that only​ 50% of recent college graduates had a job offer prior to graduation.   B. The conclusion cannot be determined from the information given.   C. There is sufficient evidence to conclude more than​ 50% of recent college graduates had a job offer prior to graduation.   D. There is not sufficient evidence to conclude more than​ 50% of recent college graduates had a job offer prior to graduation.
