    Answer:

    e. An observational study using a stratified sample.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The case above is not an experiment because no treatment is being imposed upon the customers. An experiment involves the introduction of treatments on subjects and studying its effect. Also, the observational study involves using stratified stratified samples which involves selecting samples from two distinct groups with different characteristics.
