07/11/06 Main Findings - Questionnaire Sudharshine My main question is about cigarette sales - whether cigarette sales should be banned or not. To find out what other people say to this ban, I created a questionnaire for twenty people. I gave the questionnaire to males and females, smokers and non - smokers. The questionnaire that was created gave me an insight, to what I would expect in my interview and my secondary sources. 5 out of 20 people were males, only this number of males was willing to answer my questionnaire. 15 out of 20 people were females; they were willing to answer my questions.
