Use the following to answer the questions below:

In May 2012, President Obama made history by revealing his support of gay marriage. Around that time, the Gallup Organization polled 1,024 U.S. adults about their opinions on gay/lesbian relations and gay marriage. They found that 54% of those sampled viewed gay/lesbian relations as "morally acceptable" and that 50% felt that gay marriage should be legal.

Define the appropriate parameter and state the hypotheses for testing if this sample provides evidence that the proportion of American adults who support gay marriage differs from 50%.

▸ Parameter: p = proportion of American adults who support gay marriage
Hypotheses: H0 : p = 0.50 versus Ha : p > 0.50

▸ Parameter: p = proportion of American adults who support gay marriage
Hypotheses: H0 : p = 0.50 versus Ha : p ≠ 0.50

▸ Parameter: p = proportion of American adults who support gay marriage
Hypotheses: H0 : p = 0.50 versus Ha : p < 0.50

▸ Parameter: p = proportion of American adults who support gay marriage
Hypotheses: H0 : p ≠ 0.50 versus Ha : p = 0.50
