I wanted to verify whether my conclusion is correct or not because I really do feel the conclusion at the end of the book is incorrect

The question is:

For the given hypothesis, sample size and the value of S+, state whether the null hypothesis is rejected or not rejected at the 5% significance level. Do not use a normal approximation.

Ho: the population median is 154

H1: the population median is greater than 154

S+ = 11 and n = 15

I took the probability for P(X ≥ 11) and got my answer as 0.0592

Since null hypothesis is rejected when p ≤ α and 0.0592 is greater than 0.050, shouldn't we accept null hypothesis? [the answer at the back says to reject null hypothesis]
