      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Cochlear implants are seen as a threat to Deaf Culture because they are perceived as promoting the idea that deafness is a medical condition that needs to be fixed, rather than a cultural identity. The Deaf Community values sign language and deaf culture, and sees cochlear implants as a potential threat to their language, community, and way of life. They believe that cochlear implants may lead to a decrease in the use and recognition of sign language and a loss of Deaf identity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because Nancy and her husband, Michael, both use sign language as their primary means of communication. Since their grandson, Peter, may not be familiar with sign language, Nancy fears that they will not be able to communicate fluently with him. This suggests that there may be a potential language barrier between Nancy, Michael, and Peter, making it difficult for them to have effective communication.

  • 9. 

    In the end, both Heather and Peter, the baby, receive cochlear implants. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In the given statement, it is mentioned that both Heather and Peter, the baby, receive cochlear implants. However, the correct answer is False. The statement contradicts itself because it states that both Heather and Peter receive cochlear implants, but Peter is referred to as a baby. Cochlear implants are typically not recommended for babies, as they are usually only considered for individuals who have severe to profound hearing loss and have not benefited from other forms of hearing aids. Therefore, the statement is false.
