Here are a few questions about your friends. Thinking of up to three of your closest friends, we would like to ask some questions about each of them in turn. None of the things we would like to know would allow us to identify your friend. Don't worry about the order which you tell us about them. Now, thinking of your first friend, is this friend {if loop=1} / Now, thinking of your second friend, is this friend {if loop=2} / Now, thinking of your third friend, is this friend {if loop=3}
