  2. If #1 is a survey question, you might want to be more specific in your alternatives:
    Daily
    5-6 times a week
    2-4 times a week
    weekly
    less than weekly
    never

    "Sometimes," "Often" and "time to time" are very vague terms.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
