Hola,

Me gustaría saber cuál de estas dos formas es correcta para expresar selección de un todo, o si las dos son correctas. Por ejemplo:

3 out of 5 interviewees don't normally eat fast food
3 in 5 interviewees don't normally eat fast food

Muchas gracias.

Buena Semana Santa.

    Yeah, I've seen both forms used but in the example you gave us, "three out of five" sounds more natural.
