P value interpretation

In a genome wide association study using SNPs, low penetrance susceptibility alleles for colorectal cancer are reported to associate with disease as follows:
Gene p-Value
F p<1
G p<0.1
H p<0.08
I p<0.05
J p<0.01
K p<0.001
L p<0.0001

10 Which gene is potentially statistically significant associated with the disease?

A. Gene F only
B. Gene F and G only
C. Gene L only
D. Gene I only
E. Gene I, J, K and L

i get that P > 0.10 No evidence against the null hypothesis. The data appear to be consistent with the null hypothesis. 0.05 < P < 0.10 Weak evidence against the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative. 0.01 < P < 0.05 Moderate evidence against the null hypothesis in favor of the
alternative. 0.001 < P < 0.01 Strong evidence against the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative.P < 0.001 Very strong evidence against the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative. but I dont know what the null hypothesis is for this so I am unsure
