    Explanation
    A scramble system is most commonly used with buffet service. In buffet service, food is arranged on a table or counter and guests serve themselves. A scramble system refers to the arrangement of food items in a random or mixed order, allowing guests to choose from a variety of options. This system is ideal for buffet service as it provides flexibility and variety for guests to select their preferred dishes. Plate service, cart service, and platter service typically involve pre-portioned or pre-selected meals, which do not require a scramble system.
