What is the most common move 1 by Black in all openings combined?

If the answer is Nf6, should be called "copying" or making a good move?

Very common against c4 and Nf3

Move 1 for Black

If more people played the Old Benoni...

Yeah move 1 for black but if we count only e4 d4 c4 Nf3 which are the most played would it be c5 or not?
