    Correct Answer
    A. People who witness an event (like cyberbullying) but take no action.
    Explanation
    A bystander refers to someone who observes an event, such as cyberbullying, but chooses not to intervene or take any action. They may witness the situation but do not get involved or offer any assistance or support to the victim. Bystanders play a crucial role in addressing and preventing such incidents, as their inaction can perpetuate the harm caused by the bully. It is important to encourage bystanders to become upstanders by speaking out against bullying and supporting those who are being targeted.

      Send a mean message back to them.

    Correct Answer
    D. Send a mean message back to them.
    Explanation
    Sending a mean message back to a cyberbully is not something you should do if they are bothering you. Responding with aggression or negativity can escalate the situation and potentially make it worse. It is important to remain calm and not stoop to their level. Instead, it is advisable to save the evidence of the cyberbullying, get an adult involved to help address the issue, and block their e-mails or any other means of communication to minimize contact with the cyberbully.
