    Correct Answer
    B. Tell your parents.
    Explanation
    If you feel uncomfortable in any chat room, find something "a little weird" on Facebook/MySpace, or just think something is wrong, telling your parents is the best course of action. They can provide guidance, support, and help ensure your safety. It is important to involve a trusted adult who can assist you in handling the situation appropriately.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What should you eliminate from photos that you post online?

    • A.

      Any recognizable landmarks.

    • B.

      Nudity.

    • C.

      Faces of others in photo.

    • D.

      Any illegal activities.

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    When posting photos online, it is important to consider privacy and safety. Including recognizable landmarks can give away personal information about your location. Nudity is not appropriate for public platforms and can violate community guidelines. Faces of others in a photo should be respected and their consent obtained before sharing. Any illegal activities should never be promoted or shared online. Therefore, to ensure privacy, safety, and adhere to ethical standards, it is best to eliminate all of the above from photos posted online.

    • C.

      Your friends

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. A trusted adult
    Explanation
    A trusted adult is the first person you should talk to if someone keeps bothering you online. This is because they can provide guidance, support, and help you deal with the situation effectively. They can also offer advice on how to stay safe online and may be able to intervene or report the issue if necessary. It is important to reach out to someone you trust and who can provide assistance in handling online harassment.

    Rate this question:

  • 5.

    • A.

      Shouldn't have started the chatting in the first place.

    • B.

      Tell him/her yes, and set a date to meet at your house or his/hers.

    • C.

      Don't trust anything anyone says on the internet. They could be lying about who they are.

    • D.

      Keep chatting to learn more about them.

    • E.

      Only A and C

    Correct Answer
    C. Don't trust anything anyone says on the internet. They could be lying about who they are.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Don't trust anything anyone says on the internet. They could be lying about who they are." This is because it is important to exercise caution when interacting with strangers online. While the person may claim to have similar interests and be the same age, it is impossible to verify their true identity. Meeting someone in person without proper verification can be risky and potentially dangerous. It is always better to prioritize personal safety and refrain from meeting strangers from the internet.

    Rate this question:

  • 6.

    • A.

      Your email or other personal sites could be tampered with

    • B.

      Someone could steal your identity online

    • C.

      Your banking or shopping sites could be tampered with by someone you don't know

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Giving your password to a friend could result in all of the mentioned incidents. When you share your password, your friend can access your email or personal sites and tamper with them. They can also steal your identity online by impersonating you and carrying out malicious activities. Additionally, they can tamper with your banking or shopping sites, potentially causing financial loss or unauthorized transactions. Therefore, all of the mentioned incidents are possible consequences of sharing your password with a friend.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    If someone creates a social networking page (such as Facebook or Instagram)  in your name, you should:

    • A.

      Ignore it

    • B.

      Create one of your own

    • C.

      Show it to your friends

    • D.

      Tell your parents and report the fake account. 

    Correct Answer
    D. Tell your parents and report the fake account. 
    Explanation
    Ignoring it may not address the issue, and creating one of your own may not be necessary if you don't want a presence on that particular social network. Reporting the fake account is a good step to protect your identity and privacy, and involving your parents can provide additional support in handling the situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which would make the best password?

    • A.

      Password

    • B.

      Hello

      C4li0rn14

    Correct Answer
    D. C4li0rn14
    Explanation
    The password "c4li0rn14" would make the best choice because it is a combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and numbers. This makes it more complex and harder to guess or crack compared to the other options. It also has a sufficient length, which adds an additional layer of security.

      Adults

    • D.

      Senior citizens

    Correct Answer
    B. Adolescents
    Explanation
    Adolescents are the most vulnerable age group to Internet threats because they are often more active online compared to other age groups. They may lack awareness about online dangers, be more prone to taking risks, and have limited experience in dealing with potential threats. Additionally, adolescents may engage in risky online behaviors such as sharing personal information, interacting with strangers, or participating in cyberbullying. Therefore, they are more likely to fall victim to various Internet threats such as cyberbullying, online predators, identity theft, and exposure to inappropriate content.

    Correct Answer
    D. possibly forever ― people can re-post it, and deleting doesn’t always work if someone else has copied your picture
    Explanation
    When you post a photo of yourself online, there is a possibility that it will stay online forever. This is because people can re-post the photo, and even if you delete it, there is no guarantee that it will be completely removed, especially if someone else has already copied and saved the picture. Therefore, once a photo is uploaded, it can potentially remain accessible and circulating on the internet indefinitely.

Social media platforms, websites, and online news outlets all contribute to the rapid spread of information. Additionally, the ability to share and repost content allows for information to reach even more people, leading to a widespread dissemination of knowledge, news, and ideas.
