  1. 3. Stealing a candy bar is a "life of crime"?

    Your example for 5 is punishment. Negative reinforcement is taking away a negative reinforcer, e.g., a rat stops a shock by pushing on a lever.

    7. Not a clear example. Why should she be happy? What happened? How did this differ from 1?

    In conditioning, when a response is no longer followed by reward, it gradually goes to extinction.

    The rest are correct.
