A stereotype is used to categorize a group of people. People don't understand "those" type of people, so they put them into classifications, thinking that everyone who is similar is exactly the same, or anyone who acts like them fits into their classification. Given that, you can rule out the first and last choice. I think we've all heard the stereotype that girls are bad drivers, usually a guy will mention it, and from that we can rule out the second choice. The only choice left is the third. Another common stereotype is that all Canadians are friendly and polite, and I don't know about you, but I think being labeled as friendly would be a good thing. (:
