garden path sentence

Hello, contributors

"Ask people which of these four crosses they like best".

Q1. I wonder if the sentence above can be considered as a garden path sentence. It is difficult for me to parse, whether a) Ask people which of these four crosses / they like best, or b) Ask people / which of these four crosses they like best.

Q2. Do native speakears usually use such complex sentence in their speaking or informal writing?
