You perform a chi-square test for gene X and find the p-value to be between 0.05 and 0.01. What can you say with 95% certainty about this population?

A . This population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium at the X locus: gene X is influenced by at least one force of evolution.

B. This population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium at the X locus: gene X is not influenced by any forces of evolution.

C. This population is not in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium at the X locus: gene X is influenced by at least one force of evolution.

D. This population is not in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium at the X locus: gene X is not influenced by any forces of evolution.

Answer

This population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium at the X locus: gene X is influenced by at least one force of evolution.
