So, the correct answer is (D): Prejudice

Detailed Explanation by Teachoo

Let’s check all the options

  • Option (A) Habits - Habits are regular patterns of behavior that people do often. Habits can be good or bad, but they do not necessarily hurt the feelings of people. For example, some people have a habit of brushing their teeth twice a day, which is a good habit. Some people have a habit of biting their nails, which is a bad habit. But these habits do not affect how they treat others or how others treat them. So, this is incorrect

  • Option (B) Diversity - Diversity means having variety or differences. Diversity can be seen in many aspects of life, such as culture, language, religion, ethnicity, gender, etc. Diversity is not something that hurts the feelings of people. In fact, diversity is something that enriches our lives and helps us learn from each other. For example, we can enjoy different kinds of food, music, art and literature from different cultures. We can also respect and appreciate the different beliefs and values of different religions. So, this is incorrect

  • Option (C) Language - Language is a system of communication that people use to express their thoughts and feelings. Language can also reflect the culture and identity of a group of people. Language is not something that hurts the feelings of people by itself. However, language can be used in a positive or negative way depending on how we speak and what we say. For example, we can use language to compliment, encourage, inform or persuade others. We can also use language to insult, mock, hurt or deceive others. So, language is not the cause of hurting the feelings of people, but the way we use it can be. So, this is incorrect

  • Option (D) Prejudice - Prejudice is an unfair and unreasonable opinion or feeling about someone based on their membership to a particular group. Prejudice is often formed without enough thought or knowledge about the person or the group. Prejudice can lead to dislike, hostility or unjust behavior towards others who are different from us. For example, some people may have prejudice against people of a different race, gender, religion or nationality. They may think that they are superior or inferior to them based on their appearance or beliefs. They may also treat them differently or unfairly because of their prejudice. This can hurt the feelings of people who are discriminated against or excluded because of their group identity. So, this is correct

Thus, option (D) is correct
