    You are playing golf and you hit the ball into the woods behind a tree and nobody can see you. It is ok to move the ball away from the tree so you can have a better shot at the next hit.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Moving the ball away from the tree in order to have a better shot is not allowed in golf. According to the rules of golf, players must play the ball as it lies, unless otherwise specified. In this situation, since the ball is behind a tree, the player would need to take the shot from that position, without moving the ball. Moving the ball would be considered a violation of the rules and would result in a penalty. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Explanation
    This statement suggests that winning is the only thing that matters and nothing else holds any value. However, this is an extreme and unrealistic view. While winning can be important in certain situations, it is not the sole determinant of success or happiness.
