Question 5: 
 Number of responses for this question: 34
From the above summary, we can infer that most people feel sorry and empathise with those who are ostracised. Others feel that there must be a reason as to why they are ostracised. Our respondents also feel that those who are being ostracised due to their behaviour/ attitude should change. Some view this problem as a rude act by the ones who are ostracising others. 
While looking through our survey, we realised one particular answer, which is the last reason in the table. It states that it may look bad for the person who is ostracised, but it may bring the person's mental health to a higher level and be mentally stronger than most of the people.

They do not fit in and they stand out in a negative way to most people. Others feel that they have different preferences and perspectives from majority. Other factors, like their race, religion and believes adds on to the list.
