In school, we were taught to always pick C in a multiple choice question if unsure. Would being the 3rd choice on a ballot bring any statistical advantage?

    What kind of school did you go to? I would imagine that only the first choice has a small advantage and maybe the last one a disadvantage. – user1721135 Mar 19 at 7:48

    There have been studies showing A has an advantage when none of the candidates are widely known. Will try and dig them out if no one beats me to it – JeffUK Mar 19 at 11:10
