Headlines are sometimes misleading because it is impossible to tell the whole truth in only a few words.

a. True
b. False

Answer

The correct answer is A.True.
It can be misleading.
However, responsible news reporting will need headlines to be accurate and tell the truth.
Oftentimes, the eye-catching aspect of the headline is being prioritized by the news writer in order to lead the reader into the news, this is why the confusion will ensue for some of the readers when they will not read the whole news article.
Playing with words and pulling at the curiosity of the readers is crucial and should be taken responsibly when dealing with sensitive topics.
