Default  MCAT 2015 exam #2, Biology error

In the biology section, question #136, I believe there is an error in the answer choice. 
The question states that 0.25% of the population have the recessive disease, so q^2 = .0025, the solution then says that q must be equal to .005, but shouldn't q be equal to .05?
That means that p = .95, and 2pq = 2(.95)(.05) = .095 
Therefore the correct answer would be option C, as it is closer to 10%
