    C. When the call concerns those you are meeting with (ie., the call is from the boss)
    Explanation
    It is appropriate to take a cell phone call during a meeting when the call concerns those you are meeting with, such as when the call is from the boss. This suggests that the call is relevant to the meeting and may require immediate attention or input from the person attending the meeting. In such cases, it is acceptable to briefly excuse oneself from the room and take the call in another area to avoid disrupting the meeting.

    B. False
    Explanation
    Holding private conversations in public areas such as bathrooms, elevators, etc. is not considered acceptable.

    Correct Answer
    A. Between 5 minutes early and the exact meeting time so you don't inconvenience anyone.
    Explanation
    Arriving between 5 minutes early and the exact meeting time ensures that you are punctual and respectful of others' time. Being too early may disrupt the host's preparations, while arriving late can inconvenience other attendees and disrupt the flow of the meeting. Therefore, arriving within this time frame strikes a balance between being prompt and considerate.

      Leave a message that's clear, short, and to the point.

      Humor.

    Correct Answer
    A. Leave a message that's clear, short, and to the point.
    Explanation
    The most important factor in leaving a voice mail message is to make sure it is clear, short, and to the point. This is because people often have limited time and attention span when listening to voice mails, so a concise and focused message is more likely to be understood and remembered. Leaving as much information as possible may lead to a lengthy and confusing message, while humor may not always be appropriate or effective in conveying the intended message.

    When using a speakerphone, it is important to announce if anyone else is present before a conversation begins. This is necessary to ensure that everyone involved in the conversation is aware of who is listening and can adjust their behavior accordingly. Failing to announce the presence of others may lead to misunderstandings or unintentional disclosure of sensitive information. By announcing the presence of others, everyone can participate in the conversation with full knowledge and consent.

    Correct Answer
    B. Send a short message stating your situation and that you will respond in detail as soon as you can.

This shows professionalism and consideration towards the sender, letting them know that their email has been received and will be addressed in due time. Ignoring the email is not a suitable option, as it can lead to misunderstandings and frustration for the sender. Waiting to answer when you have time may result in delayed responses and potential missed opportunities.
