    Definitions of abnormality
    Define each definition if that make sense?
    1. Deviation from social norms
    2. Deviation from statistical norms
    3. Deviation from ideal mental health
    4. Failure to function adequately

    Then evaluate; give one/two strengths and weaknesses for each definitions.

    The question i had was;
    Outline and evaluate the definitions of abnormality. (16marks)
