During a survey, shoppers at a local mall were asked, "Which Baskin Robbins ice cream is your favorite flovor?" Determine whether the survey question is baised or unbaised. Exlpain the reasoning for the answer?

It's unbiased because presumably this survey is taken for Baskin Robbins. The question makes no attempt to influence the responder's choice of flavors.

Does the mall have a Baskin Robbins? If so, was the survey given in the store or elsewhere in the mall?
The question is "openended," so it is not biased. However, where the question is asked might bias the survey.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
