An officer's job is to arrest suspects. A suspect is someone who "probably" committed a crime or possesses contraband.
An officer asks questions to get you to say something that makes you look suspicious. Most people who get arrested said something that made them more suspicious.
So, don't answer the officer's questions. Everyone has the right to remain silent and the only way to be sure you aren't misunderstood is to say nothing.
Don't lie, either.
