  • Hey there!

    When you hear/see the word “ashamed”, think of a person feeling distressed or embarrassed about something and when you hear/see the word “guilt”, think of how a person guilty conscience is feeling responsible for a for something they have done wrong.

    Now, made the definitions easier to solve. Your answer should be: Guilty
