    Megan's profane language increases in frequency when it leads to her friend's approving laughter but decreases in frequency when it leads to her parent's criticism. This best illustrates: b. the law of effect.

    Explanation:

    Profane language is a kind of offensive language which gets bleeped on TV. This kind of language shows lack of respect and portrays the behavior of the person to be bad.

    According to law of effect, the responses determine the occurrence of the situation. The responses with higher effect for the situation may occur again, but if the response produces discomfort effect the chance of occurrence of the situation again will be less.

    Megan's profane language increases in front of his friends and decreases before his parents.
