    "At the beginning of the twentieth century, a new science - experimental psychology - emerged in an attempt to discover how our minds work, and the scientific method was put to use to confirm or disprove the speculative theories of the past. JB Watson was at the forefront of this research, and his area of interest was the origin of human emotions. Do we learn them or are we born with them? In particular, Watson wanted to study fear, and was prepared to go to great lengths to study his theory.
    • Watson’s subject was a 9 month old infant, Albert. During the experiment, Watson presented the child with things which are often considered frightening – a rat, fire, a clown mask. At first, Albert was unafraid of these things. But then Watson tormented the child with loud, unexpected noises as he was playing with them. Sure enough, Albert learnt to associate these things with the unpleasant experience. Even when the noises were stopped, Albert withdrew his body and puckered his face when presented once more with the rat and mask.
    • The film which Watson made of the experiment makes discomforting viewing, as the child is interminably and cold-heartedly tortured by the items which he has been taught to fear. Nonetheless, this was a landmark work with profound influence. Through it, Watson confirmed that humans learn fear by association, and as a result they can ‘un-learn’ it, a discovery that still impacts the work of behavioural therapists today."
    • What did Watson want to prove?

    • A.

    • B.

    • C.

      Humans can be conditioned to fear anything

    • D.

      Children are more scared of loud noises than rats and masks

    • E.

      I don't know

    Correct Answer
    C. Humans can be conditioned to fear anything
    Explanation
    Watson wanted to prove that humans can be conditioned to fear anything. He conducted an experiment on a 9-month-old infant, Albert, where he presented him with things that are often considered frightening, such as a rat, fire, and a clown mask. By tormenting Albert with loud, unexpected noises while he was interacting with these objects, Watson successfully associated fear with them in Albert's mind. Even after the noises were stopped, Albert continued to show fear responses when presented with the rat and mask. This experiment confirmed that humans can learn fear through association and can also unlearn it, which has had a profound impact on the work of behavioral therapists.

    Correct Answer
    only did I
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "only did I". This is because the sentence is a form of inversion, where the auxiliary verb "did" is placed before the subject "I" to emphasize the action of finishing the project and helping Simon. The phrase "only did I" is used to convey that the speaker not only finished the project but also assisted Simon.
