## The Golden Comet is a hybrid chicken that is prized for its high egg production rate and gentle disposition. According to recent studies, the mean rate of egg production for 1-year-old Golden Comets is 5.9 eggs/week.Sarah has 43 1-year-old hens that are fed exclusively on natural scratch feed: insects, seeds, and plants that the hens obtain as they range freely around the farm. Her hens exhibit a mean egg-laying rate of 6.8 eggs/day.Sarah wants to determine whether the mean laying rate ȝ for her hens is higher than the mean rate for all Golden Comets. State the appropriate null and alternate hypotheses.

A) $H _ { 0 } : \mu > 5.9 , H _ { 1 } : \mu = 5.9$
B) $H _ { 0 } : \mu < 6.8 , H _ { 1 } : \mu = 6.8$
C) $H _ { 0 } : \mu = 5.9 , H _ { 1 } : \mu > 5.9$
D) $H _ { 0 } : \mu = 6.8 , H _ { 1 } : \mu \neq 6.8$
