    The given correct answer is "A and B". This means that the synthetic fiber line is both slippery when wet and dangerous because of SNAP-Back. Slippery when wet implies that the line becomes more slippery when it comes into contact with water, which can make it more difficult to handle or control. Dangerous because of SNAP-Back suggests that the line has a tendency to snap back forcefully when it is stretched or under tension, which can potentially cause injury. Therefore, both of these characteristics make the synthetic fiber line potentially hazardous in certain situations.
