    Which of the following is an open ended question?

    • A.

      How would this make the loading of the grain faster

    • B.

      Would this work for you

    • C.

    • D.

      All of the above

    • E.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    A. How would this make the loading of the grain faster
    Explanation
    An open-ended question is one that cannot be answered with a simple yes or no, but requires a more detailed response. "How would this make the loading of the grain faster" is an open-ended question because it prompts the respondent to provide an explanation or reasoning behind their answer. The other options, "Would this work for you" and "Do you want to buy" can be answered with a simple yes or no, making them closed-ended questions. Therefore, the correct answer is "How would this make the loading of the grain faster" as it meets the criteria of an open-ended question.

    Correct Answer
    E. Both a and d

    Both option a and d are the best course of action in this situation. Attempting to contact the owner by phone is important because the owner is the only person allowed to approve a product return. This shows that you are following the store policy and trying to find a solution. Additionally, listening to Ms. Jones and attempting to calm her down is important to provide good customer service and address her concerns. By doing both, you are showing empathy towards the customer while also following the proper procedures.

    • A.

      Listening

    • B.

    D. Both a and b
    Explanation
    The best way to identify customers' needs and wants during the sales process is by both listening to them and asking in-depth probing questions. Listening allows the salesperson to understand the customer's requirements and preferences, while asking in-depth probing questions helps to gather more specific information and uncover any hidden needs or desires. By combining these two approaches, the salesperson can gain a comprehensive understanding of the customer's needs and wants, enabling them to provide tailored solutions and enhance the overall sales experience.

    Every sales call needs to end with a Sale.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is not true because not every sales call will result in a sale. Sales calls are made to engage with potential customers, understand their needs, and offer solutions. The ultimate goal is to make a sale, but it is not guaranteed on every call. Sales calls can also be used for building relationships, gathering information, or providing customer support, which may not directly lead to a sale. Therefore, the statement is false.

Listening skills will help you actively listen to the customer's complaint and understand their concerns. Open-ended questions will allow you to gather more detailed information about the issue, as they encourage the customer to provide more information and explain their experience in depth.
