Variable beenbullied: Been bullied past couple of months

Literal Question

MQ30. Here are some questions about bullying.  We say a student is BEING BULLIED when another student, or a group of students, say or do nasty and unpleasant things to him or her.  It is also bullying when a student is teased repeatedly in a way he or she does not like or when he or she is deliberately left out of things. But it is NOT BULLYING when two students of about the same strength or power argue or fight.  It is also not bullying when a student is teased in a friendly and playful way.
How often have you been bullied at school in the past couple of months?
