A stock answer, expression, or way of doing something is one that is very commonly used, especially because people cannot be bothered to think of something new.

Question 1: Does people cannot be bothered mean the same as people cannot bother?

Hi,

A stock answer, expression, or way of doing something is one that is very commonly used, especially because people cannot be bothered to think of something new.
Question 1: Does people cannot be bothered mean the same as people cannot bother? Basically, yes.

Question 2: Do who is behaved badly and who behaves badly mean the same?

Yes, except that your version of #1 doesn't sound right. The stock form of #1 is who is badly behaved.

Best wishes, Clive

He means we don't say "She is so behaved badly!" but we say "She is so badly behaved!"
