In polling the users, we need to make it clear what the options are.
We need text that presents a set of options to consider, and then asks
users what they think of these options.

We can ask users about the option that you've called "part 1".
We can ask users about the option that you've called "all three parts".
They are different options.

We can, if we wish, ask users about both of them, and other options

In any case, all the options we present should be presented on an
equal footing.  It would be confusing to present one option as "part
of" another option, and it would tend to bias the results.
