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)

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.

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`
