Statement of the Task
This project will be conducted in the form of an investigation that aims to examine the preference of my classmates in fast food. In order to complete this project, I will use data collected from surveys that will be completed by twelfth graders, that have between 17 and 18 years old, of the American School of Tegucigalpa. I will randomly choose fifty students. Once I have gathered all these information, I will count and tally the votes in order to construct all the charts that will visually portray the results of the investigation, depending on the various questions asked in the survey. I will be examining the charts according to each question to determine how often the surveyed people eat fast food, which restaurant they prefer, why, and what is it that they take into account when determining the quality of a fast food restaurant. According to this, I will determine what is it that they are looking in a fast food restaurant. Then, I will be able to analyze this by interpreting the graphs and comparing them. Throughout the experiment I will also be taking into account possible drawbacks with the method I intend to follow as well as the errors in the liability of the information I intend to gather from my classmates. The conclusion of this experiment will determine what people expect to find in a fast food restaurant and what they take into account when choosing one and determining its quality, which, evidently will play a key role in choosing the best restaurant.
