Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If you're confronted by a difficult situation online, and you don't know exactly how to handle it, what should you do?

    • A.

      Ask a friend

    • B.

      Make a guess

    • C.

      Ask an adult you trust

    • D.

      Turn off the computer

    Correct Answer
    C. Ask an adult you trust
    Explanation
    When confronted by a difficult situation online, it is important to seek guidance from an adult you trust. They can provide valuable advice and support in handling the situation effectively and safely. Asking a friend may not always be the best option as they may not have the necessary knowledge or experience to provide appropriate guidance. Making a guess can lead to making wrong decisions and potentially worsening the situation. Turning off the computer may temporarily remove you from the situation, but it does not address the underlying issue or provide a long-term solution.

    • A.

      Because they are lazy

    • B.

      Because it's easier to be mean to someone over the internet instead of face to face

    • C.

    • D.

      Because they don't like talking

    Correct Answer
    B. Because it's easier to be mean to someone over the internet instead of face to face
    Explanation
    People may choose to say mean things online or in text instead of in person because it is easier to hide behind the anonymity of the internet. When communicating face to face, there is a greater sense of accountability and potential consequences for one's actions. However, online interactions provide a certain level of detachment, allowing individuals to feel less responsible for their hurtful words. This anonymity can embolden people to express their negative feelings without immediate repercussions.

    Rate this question:

  • 5.

    • A.

    • C.

      Show your friends AND try and figure out who it is

    • D.

      Text them back AND say something rude

    Correct Answer
    B. Ignore the message AND tell an adult
    Explanation
    When receiving a text message from an unknown number, it is important to prioritize personal safety and privacy. Ignoring the message is a sensible first step as engaging with an unknown person can be risky. Additionally, informing an adult about the situation allows for guidance and support in handling the unknown contact. By following these two steps, one can ensure their safety and prevent any potential harm or unwanted interactions.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Why would you be more cautious with friends that you meet online instead of in real life?

    • A.

      You don't really know who they are

    • B.

      The online friends are always just as great as real life friends

    • C.

      Online friends are more trustworthy with secrets

    • D.

      Online friends will always lie to you

    Correct Answer
    A. You don't really know who they are
    Explanation
    The reason why you would be more cautious with friends that you meet online instead of in real life is because you don't really know who they are. In real life, you have the opportunity to interact with someone face-to-face, observe their behavior, and get a better sense of their character. However, when it comes to online friendships, it is easier for people to create false identities or hide certain aspects of their lives. This lack of physical presence and limited information about their background makes it important to exercise caution and not fully trust someone until you have established a deeper and more genuine connection with them.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Everything you say online is private

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Everything you say online is private" is false. When we communicate online, our messages and information can be stored, shared, and accessed by various entities, such as internet service providers, social media platforms, and government agencies. Additionally, hackers and cybercriminals can potentially intercept and exploit our online data. Therefore, it is important to be cautious about what we share online and take steps to protect our privacy.
