      True

      False

    Explanation
    The statement suggests that students who are bullied in school are usually attentive students with good attendance. However, this statement is not necessarily true.

    Explanation
    The statement suggests that most students who bully are insecure. However, this is not necessarily true. While some bullies may indeed be insecure, it is incorrect to assume that all or most bullies fall into this category.

    B. False
    Explanation
    Contrary to stereotypes, male bullies are not usually bigger and physically stronger than their peers. This means that the statement is not true.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Students who witness bullying often refuse to remain friends with the victim and feel guilty for not reporting the incident. This is because witnessing bullying can create feelings of discomfort, fear, and powerlessness, leading students to distance themselves from the victim to avoid becoming targets themselves. Additionally, witnessing bullying may also evoke feelings of guilt and responsibility for not intervening or reporting the incident, as students may feel that they could have done something to prevent or stop the bullying.

    The statement suggests that bullies have trouble making friends, but the correct answer is false. This means that bullies do not necessarily have trouble making friends.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bullies do poorly in school compared to others who do not bully because their behavior often leads to social isolation, lack of positive relationships with peers and teachers, and increased disciplinary actions. This can result in decreased motivation to succeed academically and lower academic performance. Additionally, bullies may struggle with emotional and psychological issues that can further impact their ability to focus and perform well in school.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that most bullies stop behaving violently or aggressively when they become adults. However, the correct answer is false because research shows that some bullies continue their aggressive behavior into adulthood. It is important to address and intervene in bullying behavior early on to prevent it from persisting into adulthood.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    10. if you are being bullied it’s best to handle it alone.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Handling bullying alone is not the best approach. It is important to seek support from trusted adults, such as teachers, parents, or counselors, who can provide guidance and help address the situation effectively. By involving others, the victim can receive emotional support, practical advice, and potentially put an end to the bullying. Handling bullying alone may lead to feelings of isolation, increased stress, and a lack of resolution. Therefore, it is advisable to reach out for assistance when facing bullying.
