  15. 13. What is the most important mental difference between men and women?

  16. I agree with this statement. As the video says, women are taking care of everything more than men; as mothers, women have a lot of worries about their children so that there is a famous sentence about mother which says mother is the king of sadness. Women are the center of family, they have to manage the life and be careful about everything towards family members. With regard to their personality, women are more emotional and have breakable character. In the society they are more in danger than men and they should be more careful about themselves. Taking these factors in to account, we can say that women are more likely experience the feelings of sadness than men.

    1. Thank you for your elaborate comment.

      they have to manage the life ==> They have to manage life.
      have breakable character ==> breakable/fragile character traits
      Taking these factors in to account ==> taking these factors into account

      THANK YOU.

  17. 14. Do the behavior differences between women and men lie in biological differences?

  18. 15. My question is do you think mental and brain difference means that one of them is better or you believe that they are both humans and there is no difference between them?

    1. Thanks for your question.
      Corrections: Mental and brain difference –> differences
      means –> mean because the subject is plural
      It’s crystal-clear that they are both humans.
