Dopamine is a neurotramitter that you body make.  it has several functions, one function is that release of dopamine can make a person feel very good. 

a. is false because as I stated above it make you feel good when you are doing normal healthy things like exercise, excited by love (or Lust). 
b. is true, drug s trick the body into releasing dopamine and that is the high that addicts look for
c. false, release of too much dopamine can also cause harm to normal brain function- it can damage nerve transmission, It's kind of like abusing the engine of a car that has engine problems and running it at 100 miles an hour.  The engine will enventually fail
d. true, it take more of drug for the body to release the same feeling, the nerves that recieve dopamin become less active or die.

so B and D are true and now you know why
