Best Answer

The sentence that most clearly uses a stereotype is "See if there's a lady at the front desk who can help you." (option A)

What is a stereotype?

A stereotype is an image or belief that we have about others that is mostly unfair, biased, or prejudiced. The reason why the sentence in option A is stereotyped is the fact that the speaker assumes the job of a receptionist should be done by a woman.

Assumptions of that kind - who should do what kind of job, who should stay home with the kids, who should be more outspoken - are examples of stereotypes, and are commonly found in society.

With the information above in mind, we can select option A as the correct answer.
