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    (I hate these questions that are so out-of-date!)

  2. (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...

  3. 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.

  19. Why not let people have their opinion instead of forcing yours upon others? Personally, I haven't either of the games, but they both seem enjoyable.

    I also agree with @birb, this is a homework helping site..
