D) You survey customers at a popular restaurant

    None of these would be random today. When this question was written, the phone book would be the obvious choice. However, in 2012, over 38% of adults have no landline, so they won't be listed in phone books.

    (I hate these questions that are so out-of-date!)

    (I hate them to :c)
    So since we know that this question is old, would it be C? That was my first guess but I wasn't really sure...

    Surveying your friends would not be random.

    If you're looking for spending habits, a mall might be the most appropriate.

    Tell your teacher there is no good answer for this question.

    Oh, okay. Thanks a bunch!! Again! Also, I do an online school. So I don't know if they can change the question or remove it.. :c
