Answer: D. We do a cost-benefit analysis.

An ethnic identity particular to a context or a social setting is a situational ethnicity. Depending on its usefulness in a particular situation, situational ethnicity can either be concealed or displayed. Before displaying situational ethnicity, it is important to do a cost-benefit analysis to measure the benefits minus the risks or disadvantages associated with it.
