Stereotypes are oversimplified and generalized beliefs about a group of people, which can perpetuate biases and hinder understanding and appreciation of individual differences. Therefore, options A, B, and D are the correct choices as they all have the potential to disrupt respecting diversity.

    Explanation
    The given scenario of a 60-year-old man being denied a promotion at work because of his age is an example of discrimination.

Neither of these terms accurately describes the situation presented.

      False

    Correct Answer
