This is the chord

G/F. base-fret 1 frets 1 x 0 0 0 3

How would you go about playing a chord like this? Would you mute the A string, or would you pluck the E string and strum the rest? I know there are other placements for this chord, but i figure at some point in my playing career I will run into this, and would like to have an answer now.

Some cruddy classical that my parents bought off ebay for like 40 bucks.
Use your first finger to mute the A, whilst fretting the E.

Or play the A at the 2nd fret.
