Why is it that when your wrist is cut you are die but if you cut your arm you are not die?

It's not like that. If you cut your wrist, OR your arm, anywhere deeply enough to open an artery, it is a life-or-death situation. But if you cut your wrist or arm not too deeply, it's a "cut" - you will recover from it.

If you cut your fore wrist will it still be in danger is it different from your inner wrist?

Yes it will. Loss of blood could be really dangerous and the chance of getting an infection from the cut would be big. PLEASE do not cut yourself.

What happens if you cut your wrist?

The veins in your wrist are very important to the rest of your body. They conect to almost every other vein in your body. When you slit your wrist, it makes you bleed from all the other veins in your body. This makes you bleed, very, very badly. If it is not treated very quickly, you will most likely bleed to death.
