Very good. A couple of questions really don’t need much more than standard politeness but that depends on individual situations and specific reactions. Some of this slips across the line into personal ethics rather than work attitudes. Allowing for that I would say this is totally acceptable. None of the correct answers should be an issue.
That being said, the outraged responses from the few were sad to see. That is the problem. It’s going to be rough years for them as societies change but that will be true in any case.
