      People who fly often

    • C.

      People who have a phobia

    Correct Answer
    B. People who fly often
    Explanation

Therefore, people who fly often may no longer find the experience thrilling or interesting, leading them to perceive it as boring.

      Illogical

      Chemical

    Correct Answer
    B. Illogical
    Explanation
    A phobia is illogical because it is an irrational and excessive fear or aversion towards a specific object, situation, or activity. It is characterized by a strong emotional response that is disproportionate to the actual threat posed by the feared object or situation. Phobias often develop without any logical reason or basis, and individuals with phobias may recognize that their fear is irrational but still struggle to control or overcome it.

      12%

    • C.

      15%

    Correct Answer
    B. 12%
    Explanation
    Approximately 12% of people are afraid to fly. This means that out of every 100 people, 12 individuals have a fear of flying. This percentage suggests that a significant portion of the population experiences some level of anxiety or fear when it comes to air travel. The fear of flying can stem from various factors such as a fear of heights, a lack of control, or previous traumatic experiences. It is important to acknowledge and address these fears to ensure the comfort and well-being of individuals who may be affected.

    • B.

      Being in an elevator

    • C.

      Being alone

    Correct Answer
    B. Being in an elevator
    Explanation
    A person with a fear of enclosed places, also known as claustrophobia, is likely to feel uncomfortable and anxious in confined spaces. Being in an elevator, which is a small enclosed space, can trigger their fear and cause them distress. Walking on the roof of a building or being alone may not necessarily be related to their fear of enclosed places.

    Correct Answer
    A. Crowds at airports
    Explanation
    Crowds at airports especially bother older people because they may find it overwhelming and stressful. Older individuals may have difficulty navigating through large crowds, standing for long periods, or dealing with the noise and confusion of busy airports. Additionally, older people may have health conditions or mobility issues that make it more challenging for them to maneuver through crowded spaces. Therefore, the presence of crowds at airports can be particularly bothersome for older individuals.
