  • 5.

      Something I can't take back

    • B.

      Posts on Facebook that would be considered threats

    • C.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Something I can't take back
    B. Posts on Facebook that would be considered threats
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Something I can't take back" and "Posts on Facebook that would be considered threats". These are the options that one would most likely regret posting. "Something I can't take back" implies a permanent and irreversible action that may have negative consequences. Similarly, posting threats on Facebook can lead to serious legal and personal repercussions, making it something that would be regrettable. On the other hand, sharing one's resume with potential employers is a normal and expected action, and therefore would not likely be a source of regret.
