7 (b) A total number of 3759 individuals were interviewed in a public opinion survey on a political survey. Of them 1872 were men and rest women. A total 2257 individuals were in favour of the proposal and 917 were opposed to it. A total of 243 men were undecided and 442 women were opposed to the proposal. Do you justify or contradict the hypothesis that there is no association between sex and attitude.
