The correct answer is B. (statistically significant). Statistical significance gives us information about the likelihood that a result such as difference between experimental and control group or a correlation occurred due to chance. Statistical significance that is less than 5 percent indicates that there is less than 5 percent chance that the result occurred due to chance.
