17. Determine the appropriate approach to conduct a hypothesis test for this claim: The systolic blood pressure of men who run at least five miles each week varies less than does the systolic blood pressure of all men. Sample data: n = 100 randomly selected men who run at least five miles each week, sample mean = 108.4, and s = 20.3

A) Use the normal distribution.

B) Use the Student t distribution.

C) Use the chi-square distribution.
