Many graduate surveys are poorly worded, but as a writer (and survey
respondent?) you should take that up with the author of the survey unless
you are attempting to start a thread on how one writes a survey (i.e.,
pacing, wording, writing questions that produce quantifiable information,
differences between surveys and interviews, etc.)
