Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I believe a reading on the concept of the null hypothesis would help you better understand the question. We either accept or reject the null hypothesis. The second case means we accept the alternate hypothesis, which is the negation of the null hypothesis. Therefore we cannot reject or accept both, because they are mutually exclusive. A reading of the definition and description of the null hypotheses will shed light on whether you should accept or reject the null hypothesis. See, for example, https://explorable.com/nullhypothesis
