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?

• math -

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.

• math -

Does the mall have a Baskin Robbins? If so, was the survey given in the store or elsewhere in the mall?

The question is "open-ended," 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.
