A dentist's office gives a carnation (adults) or a small toy (children) to patients at the conclusion of each dental appointment. Which of the following is/are FALSE:

If the gift's goal is to keep the patient returning, then the related learning model is Instrumental Conditioning, and the carnation/toy is a positive reinforcement.

If the goal of the gift is to have the patient tell his/her friends favorable things about the dental office, then the related model is Classical Conditioning.

If the gift's goal is to keep the patient returning, then the related learning model is Instrumental Conditioning, and the carnation/toy can be viewed as a negative reinforcement. That is, since the flower/toy is presented after and dental discomfort has ended, it signals "cessation of an unpleasant stimulus."

If the gift's goal is to have a patient tell others favorable things about the office, then the related model is Instrumental Conditioning, & the gift is a positive reinforcement.

All of the above are true.
