This question was phrased by the source as follows: "Most people are particularly interested in certain topics, and hardly interested in others. Would you take a look at these cards and organize them on this sheet according to how interested you are in the topics? Subject: telecommunications, e.g. mobile phones, smartphones, DSL (up to 2009: modern telecommunications, e.g. mobile phones, fax, answering machines, ISDN)"
(Original German question: Diese Frage wurde bei der Befragung in folgendem Wortlaut gestellt: „Es ist ja oft so, dass man über das eine gern mehr erfahren möchte, anderes interessiert einen weniger. Könnten Sie jetzt bitte einmal die Karten hier ansehen und auf dieses Blatt verteilen, je nachdem, wie sehr Sie das interessiert. Sie sehen ja, was hier steht. Thema: Telekommunikation wie Handy, Smartphone, DSL (Bis 2009: Moderne Telekommunikation wie Handy, Fax, Anrufbeantworter, ISDN)“)
