no it's not representative because you have volunteer response bias the ones responding are usually either very happy or very angry with the product. The avg consumer won't bother to take the time to do the survey

Of course, you could get some consumers who are a mix of happy/angry with the product, but usually surveys are filled out when there is some motivation behind it. That motivation is usually when the product is faulty and the consumer wants to let the company know in some way. But yeah, it's B
