***Use the following information to answer questions 3, 4, 5 & 6 below***:
A group of medical researchers investigated the effects of Drug X on lowering cholesterol levels in a group of men between the ages of 50 and 70 years old. The researchers did the following experiment and obtained the indicated results: One group of 150 men took a tablet containing Drug X for 3 weeks  95 of these men decreased their cholesterol levels by at least 10% (three men from this group dropped out of the study). Another group of 150 men was given a tablet with no added Drug X for 3 weeks  10 of these men decreased their cholesterol levels by at least 10% (two men from this group dropped out of the study).
3. Which of the following is the best hypothesis for this experiment?
A) Will drug X lower cholesterol levels in men between the age of 50 and 70 years?
B) Drug X will lower cholesterol levels in men.
C) Since high cholesterol levels significantly increases several health risks for men, drug X is most likely beneficial.
D) Men between the age of 50 and 70 years will have reduced cholesterol levels if they take drug X over a 3 week period.
