    Option D is correct.

    Explanation:

    In statistics, hypothesis testing is described as an act in which an analyst tends to test a particular assumption that is being related to a specific population parameter. However, the methodology used in the hypothesis testing by the analyst completely depends on the reason for the analysis and the nature of the data being utilized. Therefore, hypothesis testing is employed to assess the 'plausibility' of a particular hypothesis by utilizing "sample data".
