We have a questionnaire which has a question with three options: "a", "b", and "c". All participants are allowed to choose one of these three options.

"a" represents the condition "X" and, "b" and "c" both represent the condition "Y". Our goal is to compare the condition "X" with the condition "Y". Since we have uneven numbers of options in two conditions, how we can evaluate the significance of the preferred option over other options? In other words, if one option is more selected by participants than other options, how can we prove that this preference is inferentially significant?

My data will be something like this:

_____________________a___________b__________c

Participant 1_______0___________0__________1

Participant 2_______1___________0__________0

Participant 3_______1___________0__________0

Participant 4_______0___________1__________0

.

And how can I use your suggestion in SPSS?

Thanks
