What is social desirability bias?

The correct answer is 2. People can often guess what the study is trying to prove and have a tendency to try and give the “right” answer. As in, what they think the researcher wants to hear rather than the true answer. This is one of the reasons that it’s good to keep survey questions as neutral as possible. Participants shouldn’t be able to tell what your survey is trying to prove.
