    • C.

      Parietal Lobe

    • D.

      Occipital Lobe

    Correct Answer
    A. Frontal Lobe
    Explanation
    The frontal lobe is located at the front of the brain. It is responsible for various higher cognitive functions such as decision-making, problem-solving, planning, and personality. It also controls voluntary movements and is involved in speech production and motor skills. The frontal lobe plays a crucial role in executive functions and is connected to other parts of the brain, allowing for complex cognitive processes.

    • D.

      Parietal Lobe

    Correct Answer
    C. Frontal Lobe
    Explanation
    The frontal lobe is the last part of the brain to be developed. It is responsible for higher cognitive functions such as decision-making, problem-solving, and impulse control. This area of the brain continues to develop throughout adolescence and into early adulthood. The frontal lobe plays a crucial role in personality development and the ability to plan and think abstractly. Its late development explains why teenagers often struggle with impulse control and decision-making compared to adults.

      A, C

    • F.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. A, C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A, C. Pacing and a rigid posture are impending signs of protective behavior. Pacing refers to the act of continuously walking back and forth in a confined space, which is often observed when an individual feels threatened or anxious. A rigid posture, on the other hand, involves stiffening of the body and maintaining a tense position, which is a common defensive response. Crying and sleeping, although they may be associated with certain emotional states, are not typically considered signs of protective behavior.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Physically protective measures are not always done immediately, they are sometimes used as a last resort. In certain situations, other non-physical measures such as negotiation, mediation, or diplomacy may be attempted before resorting to physical protection. The decision to use physical protection as a last resort is often based on the severity of the threat and the potential harm it poses. Therefore, the given statement is false.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer "True" is that when performing the two-handed grab, interlocking the fingers of both hands provides extra strength and stability. Additionally, using a quick downward motion and pulling down and out of the grab helps to exert more force and control over the object being grabbed.
