TL;DR: Don't worry, and if you're transiting, choose "yes" for transit. Unlike most countries, the US does not have a concept of "sterile transit": everybody who flies to the US must enter the US. It thus doesn't matter if you choose "yes" or "no" for transit, you will still have to queue up for Immigration entry. (Obviously, because you are in transit, ...

Yeah you can enter under the visa waiver programme for tourism or business but obviously can't work.

I don’t know what’s wisest but offer opinions because that may be the best available given that your question is about the opinion of an Immigration official: i) Getting caught in a lie, however “small” and “white”, could be enough to destroy your credibility and so lead to refusal. An Immigration officer does not have a lot of data on which to decide so ...
