    The whole of the person’s body must enter the building for the charge of burglary to stand up in court.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    For the charge of burglary to stand up in court, it is necessary for the entire body of the person to enter the building. This means that if only a part of the body enters the building, it would not be considered as burglary. Therefore, the statement "The whole of the person's body must enter the building for the charge of burglary to stand up in court" is true.

  • 5. 

    Handling stolen goods is not a common as theft, because all that is stolen has to be found a new home if it is not being retained by the thief.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that handling stolen goods is not as common as theft because the stolen items need to be sold or disposed of by the thief. However, this is not necessarily true. While it is true that stolen goods need to be moved or sold, it does not imply that handling stolen goods is less common than theft itself. The frequency of handling stolen goods can vary depending on various factors such as the market for stolen goods, the effectiveness of law enforcement, and the motivations of criminals. Therefore, the given statement is false.

    Explanation
    Tracing involves the process of determining or finding out someone's current location or whereabouts. It is a method used to locate individuals who may be missing, wanted by law enforcement, or in some cases, to track the movements of individuals for various purposes. Therefore, the statement that tracing relates to the identification of a person's current whereabouts is true.

    Force or violence can be used on a person or persons during an act of theft and it is not legally robbery.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because robbery is defined as the act of taking someone's property by using force or the threat of force. If force or violence is used during an act of theft, it can still be considered theft but not legally classified as robbery. Robbery typically involves a higher level of threat or violence, such as using a weapon or causing physical harm to the victim.

  • 9. 

    A suspect need not have physical possession of stolen goods to be guilty of handling them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because in the context of criminal law, the offense of handling stolen goods does not require the suspect to physically possess the stolen items. Rather, it refers to any action taken by the suspect that suggests they were involved in the handling or disposal of stolen goods, such as buying, selling, or transporting them. This means that even if the suspect does not physically possess the stolen goods, they can still be held guilty if their actions indicate their involvement in the handling of such goods.
