    Sorry, but I do not understand the format above. Therefore I have no idea how to help you. Of 280 employees, how many chose A, how many chose B and how many chose C. Isn't that essentially what the researcher wanted to no? Do you have 3 numbers under each option for : PRO, CON, UNDECIDED?

    Please explain exactly how we can help you?
