A group is trying to decide how to spend government aid.  The group asks outside experts to come in and give their opinion.  The manager decides that she thinks the first expert had great points and she lets all group members know that she supports that option.  Everyone agrees with her, but she has a sinking suspicion that this is only because she will soon be determining who is getting bonuses.  She is worried that there might be flaws with the chosen option.  In the future, she could BEST avoid the possibility of groupthink by ________.

▸ refraining from giving her opinion until everyone has expressed their view

▸ gathering information from inside sources only

▸ suggesting her subordinates be less critical of the alternatives

▸ punishing any members who act like a devil's advocate
