    They are all possible.

    Of those three, I prefer number two. You are likely to be talking about one gap but it is found between many students and teachers.

    However, all three are correct, as previously stated.


    Please see my amendments to your post.

    - You don't need to start it with "Usually". We're only being asked this question once, not regularly, so there would be no answer that we "usually" give.

    - I think you probably wanted the opinion of English speakers, not English people.

    -Those speakers are plural, so "Which one do..." not "Which one does".

    - We do not "prefer the most". "To prefer" means "to like the most" so "prefer" is sufficient.
