    Explanation
    The communication cycle involves the process of sending and receiving messages between a sender and a receiver. The sender is the person or entity who initiates the communication by encoding and transmitting the message. The message is the content being communicated. The environment refers to the physical and psychological context in which the communication takes place. Feedback is the response or reaction given by the receiver to the message. However, the listener is not a part of the communication cycle as they are the receiver of the message and do not actively participate in the transmission or encoding of the message.

    Correct Answer
    A. Bethel v Fraser
    Explanation
    Bethel v Fraser is the correct answer because this court case established that student rights are not the same as those given to adults. In this case, a high school student gave a speech filled with sexual innuendos at a school assembly, and he was subsequently suspended. The Supreme Court ruled that the school's disciplinary action was justified because schools have the authority to regulate lewd and indecent speech, even if it occurs outside of a formal classroom setting. This decision affirmed that students do not possess the same level of free speech rights as adults in a school environment.

    The correct answer is "you should always write in complete sentences."

Using complete sentences in an outline can make it too lengthy and difficult to follow.
