4 answers

  1. I would pick:

    14. D
    18. B
    19. A

  2. Why do you choose 14. as D please explain

  3. I'd choose D for 14 also -- my reason is that the other three are nice to discuss, but in the end, they won't change anyone's behavior. Only D might do that.

  4. If the punishment is to mild, it will be ineffective. If it is too severe, it is more likely to generate hostility toward the punisher rather than a change in behavior.
