    Public awareness in advertising is crucial for its effectiveness. It is the level of awareness and recognition that the public has for a brand or product, which can greatly influence their purchasing decisions.

    Correct Answer
    C. The Misrepresentation Act (1967) and Trade Descriptions Act (1968
    Explanation
    The Misrepresentation Act (1967) and Trade Descriptions Act (1968) protect buyers from misleading statements. These acts ensure that sellers provide accurate and truthful information about their products or services. They prevent sellers from making false claims, misrepresenting the quality or characteristics of their goods, or using deceptive advertising practices. These acts give buyers the right to take legal action if they are deceived or misled by a seller's statements.

    Members of the Advertising Standards Authority should not compete by: 

    • A.

      Praising any other member or his work directly or by implication

    • B.

      Circulating harmful rumours about that member

    • C.

      Seeking to obtain an account by offering employment to a staff member holding that account

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Circulating harmful rumours about that member
    C. Seeking to obtain an account by offering employment to a staff member holding that account
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "circulating harmful rumours about that member" and "seeking to obtain an account by offering employment to a staff member holding that account". This is because these actions go against the principles of fair competition and ethical behavior within the Advertising Standards Authority.
