A biologist hopes to estimate the proportion of alligators in Florida that are adults.

When sampling alligators, the biologist computes the one-proportion $Z$-interval going from $0.67$ to $0.74$ at $99\%$ confidence.

What conclusion can be drawn about the proportion of all adult alligators in Florida, based off of the interval?

A

The true proportion of adult alligators in Florida is probably somewhere between $0.67$ and $0.74$; the process used gives correct results $99\%$ of the time in repeated trials.

B

$99\%$ of samples such as this one will catch the interval between $0.67$ and $0.74$ (as long as the samples are conducted in Florida).

C

$99\%$ of samples such as this, conducted in Florida, will have a sample proportion between $0.67$ and $0.74$, as long as many samples are conducted.

D

$70.5\%$ of alligators in Florida are adults.

E

There is a $99\%$ probability that between $67\%$ and $74\%$ of alligators in Florida are adults.
