The school principal has received complaints from parents about bullying in the school yard during recess. He wants to investigate and end this situation as soon as possible, so he has asked the recess aides to watch closely. Which situation should the recess aides report to the principal?

[A]. A girl is sitting glumly on a bench reading a book and not interacting with her peers.
[B]. Four girls are surrounding another girl and seem to have possession of her backpack.
[C]. Two boys are playing a one-on-one game of basketball and are arguing over the last basket scored.
[D]. Three boys are huddled over a handheld video game, which isn't supposed to be on school grounds.

Answer: Option B


Seeing four girls surrounding another girl, while in possession of her backpack, is the most suspicious of the incidents described.

Why not A is somebody is sitting very quietly, can imply she is scared of bullying and so busy in herself.

There is clearly something wrong with. If she chooses to sit by herself and id be spending time with her in and out of school to see what is going on. Although in the crisis situation the other kids have to pulled away from B in case she is hurted and also clearly bullying going on there.

B) 4 girls are surrounding a girl a girl doesn't posses her backpack => a bullying imagine.

Surely it is B because if you re-read the whole sentence it said there "bullying" so we have to focus on that topic.

In D, the boys are sharing a game device. However forbidden that may be, it is not bullying, which the aides are looking for.

In A, the girl would be an obvious victim of bullying, so if she had been bullied, the bullies would be in her pursuit, as she would be an easy target who would cry easily.

No student will have backpack with him during recess.
