  13. b) She may have been feeling alone and when the guy was paying special attention to her and complimenting her, it made her trust him and feel safe with him. So, it was easy for her to succumb to temptation.

  14. Answer (b): she was probably either really bored or she had no one to talk to in school or at home which led her to be desperate and find someone else to talk to online. after, a while of chatting, she probably grew to trust him which led her to succumb to his temptations.

  19. (b) she might have needed emotional comfort and the person was there to chat with her. After chatting for a while, she would naturally trust the man and reveal certain secrets and be tempted to meet him.

  20. (B) She might be having a bad time, thus when a friendly stranger chats with you, being kind and nice, calling you "Gorgeous", she might think that the stranger is really nice and starts to like him.

  21. (c) Why is it so easy to assume a different persona online?
    Ans: To assume a different persona online, you only need 2 email address. It is free too. You need to be able to think differently according to the situation and be able to adapt to the situation.

  22. c) People can easily edit their online profiles, change their usernames, date of birth, etc. You can never truly know/trust a person's profile online.

    ReplyDelete
  23. c) all you need to do is just change a profile picture, your username, and your email and you're almost unrecognisable to everyone except people who know you very well, which is why you should never trust who you meet online.
