Answers will vary, but should contain the following for full credit:
People generally follow a norm of obeying authority figures, which is perfectly reasonable in a civilized society. In the Milgram experiment, the experimenter appeared self-assured and in charge, allowing this norm to emerge. The experiment also asked for small, incremental commitments to increasing levels of shock. A need for internal consistency of behavior contributed to obedience in this regard. "Teachers" were physically separated from "learners," which increased their psychological distance from the learner's suffering. Demand characteristics may have played some role as well, as participants assumed that obedience was called for in this study.
