Trick Question Or Typo?
« on: February 17, 2018, 02:58:31 am »
I logged on to my survey page this morning and started one of the questionnaires. One of the qualifying questions asked:

The company you work for/own employees _____ many people.

O.K. this is easy enough, so far so good.

Here are my options -

0-$50,000
$50,001-$75,000
$75,001-$100,000

and so forth.   ???  Whaaaaat?

Well I know it's early in the morning right now but I still think that I'm alert enough to see that something is not quite adding up.   :P

Sounds like a typo to me.  If it were me, I'd just choose the 1st option.  Good luck!

I agree; I believe it was a typo as well.  Don't you find it ironic that as survey takers we are asked to take our time, be accurate and so on? 

I think we should be able to report typos to the survey companies and be compensated 3 times the original amount.  LOL.  I am so very much kidding.   :silly:

I get a lot of questions with multiple choice where none of the answers are correct. I usually just pick one and figure I'll be DQ'd anyway.

I see something like this many types in surveys. It's more like a typo to me.

I usually go with the flow and just select the first option even though I know itís a typo.

I'll see these oddities at times.  Just have a good laugh and pick the first choice.  Hopefully, you'll get no less than a penny out of it.
