This was split pretty evenly between 3 and 4. Make sure you and partner have the same thing in mind!    
    2) Is this Forcing or just showing support?

    North     South
1         2        
This is both showing support and forcing too. 85% agreed with this. Others said they didn't play 2C as a game force so it wasn't forcing.
