    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Anticipated grief refers to the emotional response and preparation for an expected loss. Contrary to the statement, as the expected loss becomes imminent, the intensity of anticipated grief is more likely to increase. This is because the individual is faced with the reality of the impending loss, leading to heightened emotions and a deeper sense of grief. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Correct Answer
    C. Magnitude and nature of the loss
    Explanation
    The phrase "magnitude and nature of the loss" refers to the extent and type of the loss experienced by someone. It suggests that the level and characteristics of the loss directly influence the kind of reaction that the person may have. This implies that the greater the magnitude and more significant the nature of the loss, the more intense or specific the bereaved individual's reaction may be.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Experiencing grief is a natural and necessary part of the human experience. It allows individuals to process and come to terms with loss, which can lead to personal growth and maturity. By denying people the opportunity to grieve, they may be deprived of the chance to heal and learn important life lessons. Therefore, it is important to acknowledge and support individuals in their grieving process, as it can ultimately be a rewarding and maturing journey.

    Grief is the normal response to loss, such as the death of a loved one, and its absence can indicate psychopathology. Grief involves a range of emotions, including sadness, sorrow, and feelings of loss. It is a natural and healthy process that allows individuals to process and come to terms with their loss. When grief is absent or suppressed, it may suggest underlying psychological issues or difficulties in coping with the loss.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Depression is a mental health condition characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities. People with depression often experience a sense that something is not right with their emotions or thoughts. This can manifest as a general feeling of unease or a sense that their experiences are not aligned with their expectations. Therefore, the statement that in depression the response readily conveys the notion that something is not right is true.
