Question:

Which of the following statements indicates a stereotype?

A All students find the transition from junior high to high school difficult.
explanation

This is a stereotype of students coming from junior high and does not allow for the fact that some students may be adequately prepared for the shift in levels.
A stereotype is a fixed, widely held belief about a particular group of people or things. However, these beliefs are over-generalized. When we stereotype someone or something, we are drawing the conclusion that this person or thing possesses an entire range of characteristics we assume all members of that group have.
