I’m not sure about this one but the way I thought about it was that since the confidence interval included 1, it was not significant. And thus p value must be above 0.05

tea-cats-biscuits  That makes sense!
asapdoc  Had the same reasoning
jkan  I get that it's not significant, but why is it 0.05<p<1 and not p>1.0
jkan  nvm, it's can't be greater than 1 because then it would have a negative% confidence interval which cannot happen (Think if p>0.05 means at least 95% within confidence interval)
charcot_bouchard  p=0.05 means theres 5% chance null hypothesis is true. p=1 means theres 100% chance null hypothesis is true. >1 means >100% chance which isnt possible.
wowo  p is a probability, so can't be greater than 1

The question is basically setting up a situation similar to that of a competitive inhibitor. They say that higher concentrations of pyridoxal phosphate increases the activity of the enzyme to normal levels. Similarly, when you have a competitive inhibitor and increase the concentration of substrate, the enzyme can achieve the same Vmax as if without the inhibitor.
