Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When online surfing the web, information I should never give out is

    • A.

      My real name, address, name of my school, or my photograph.

    • B.

      The name of my favorite book.

    • C.

      The name of my favorite superhero.

    Correct Answer
    A. My real name, address, name of my school, or my photograph.
    Explanation
    When surfing the web, it is important not to disclose personal information such as one's real name, address, name of school, or photograph. This information can be used by malicious individuals for identity theft, stalking, or other harmful activities. Sharing the name of a favorite book or superhero, on the other hand, may not pose the same level of risk as it does not reveal sensitive personal details.

      Name of my pet

    Correct Answer
    C. Full name
    Explanation
    Private identity information includes personal details that uniquely identify an individual, such as their full name. This information is considered private as it is typically used for identification purposes and can be used to access sensitive personal accounts or information. Sharing one's full name can potentially lead to identity theft or unauthorized access to personal data. Therefore, it is important to keep this information confidential and only share it with trusted sources.

      Tell my parents or a trusted adult because I should never keep secrets from my parents.

    Correct Answer
    C. Tell my parents or a trusted adult because I should never keep secrets from my parents.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to tell my parents or a trusted adult because I should never keep secrets from my parents. This is important because our parents are responsible for our well-being and safety, and they need to be aware of any potential risks or dangers. Keeping secrets from them could put us in harm's way or make it difficult for them to protect us. It is always better to be open and honest with our parents or a trusted adult about any concerns or situations we encounter online.

    The correct answer is both A and B. When traveling through "Cyberspace," it is important to never agree to meet up with someone you meet online as it can be dangerous. It is also important to never give out personal or private information to protect your privacy and security.

    C. Tell a parent or trusted adult.
    Explanation
    When someone sends something online that makes us feel uncomfortable, it is important to seek help and support from a parent or trusted adult. Keeping it a secret may prolong the discomfort and potentially put us at risk. Ignoring it may not address the issue or prevent further incidents. By confiding in a parent or trusted adult, we can receive guidance on how to handle the situation and ensure our safety online.

    Explanation
    Netiquette refers to the proper behavior and manners that individuals should adhere to when communicating online. It involves treating others with respect, being polite, and following basic rules of etiquette in online interactions. This includes refraining from engaging in negative or disrespectful behavior, such as treating others badly or repeating messages excessively to dominate the conversation. Instead, netiquette encourages individuals to be considerate, kind, and responsible online citizens, fostering a positive and respectful online environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    There is someone in a chatroom saying she is fourteen years old.  Would you automatically believe her?

    • A.

      Yes.

    • B.

      No.

    Correct Answer
    B. No.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "no" because it is not wise to automatically believe someone's age claim in a chatroom. Online platforms can be anonymous, making it easy for individuals to lie about their age or identity. It is important to exercise caution and verify information before trusting someone online, especially when it comes to personal details like age.
