    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Place fork & knife across plate when finished
    Explanation
    Placing the fork and knife across the plate when finished is the most proper behavior during a business lunch. This signifies to the waitstaff that you have finished your meal and also indicates to your dining companions that you are ready to engage in further conversation or conclude the meal. It is considered polite and respectful to place your utensils in this manner, rather than leaving them scattered on the table or in a haphazard position.

    During a business lunch, it is OK to:

    • A.

      Push plate away when finished

    • B.

      Cut up entire entree at one time

    • C.

      Place napkin on top of plate when finished

    • D.

      Butter each bite of your roll as you eat it

    Correct Answer
    D. Butter each bite of your roll as you eat it
    Explanation
    During a business lunch, it is considered acceptable to butter each bite of your roll as you eat it. This is because it is considered good table manners to butter small portions of bread or rolls as you consume them, rather than buttering the entire roll at once. It shows a level of attentiveness and consideration for the meal and the dining experience.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A waiter at a full service restaurant should be tipped at least:

    • A.

      5% - 10% of bill

    • B.

      10% - 15% of bill

    • C.

      15% -20 % of bill

    • D.

      30% of bill

    Correct Answer
    C. 15% -20 % of bill
    Explanation
    A waiter at a full-service restaurant should be tipped at least 15% - 20% of the bill. This is because tipping is a customary practice in the service industry and is considered a way to show appreciation for good service. Waiters rely on tips as a significant portion of their income, and a tip of 15% - 20% is generally considered fair and appropriate for their hard work and attentive service.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    While eating, your napkin belongs_____

    • A.

      Neatly folded on the table

    • B.

      In your chair

    • C.

      In your lap

    • D.

      Tucked in your collar

    Correct Answer
    C. In your lap
    Explanation
    When eating, it is considered proper etiquette to place your napkin in your lap. This helps to protect your clothing from any spills or food particles that may fall during the meal. Placing it neatly folded on the table or in your chair would not serve this purpose, and tucking it in your collar is not a common practice. Therefore, the correct answer is "In your lap."

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    While being excused to go to the restroom, your napkin belongs

    • A.

      In your chair

    • B.

      In your lap

    • C.

      Tucked under your plate

    • D.

      Neatly folded on the table

    Correct Answer
    A. In your chair
    Explanation
    When excused to go to the restroom, it is common practice to leave your napkin neatly folded on your chair. This signals to the waitstaff that you intend to return and helps maintain the cleanliness of the table. Placing the napkin in your lap or tucking it under your plate may cause confusion and lead to the mistaken assumption that you have finished your meal. Therefore, the correct answer is to leave the napkin in your chair.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Entree' means______________

    • A.

      Appetizers

    • B.

      Main course

    • C.

      Dessert

    • D.

      Escargot

    Correct Answer
    B. Main course
    Explanation
    The word "entree" is often used in American English to refer to the main course of a meal. In this context, it typically includes a protein, such as meat or fish, along with accompanying side dishes. This term is commonly used in menus and restaurant settings to differentiate the main course from appetizers and desserts. Therefore, "entree" is synonymous with the main course of a meal.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Another term for the tip:

    • A.

      A La Mode

    • B.

      Gratuity

    • C.

      On the rocks

    • D.

      Escargot

    Correct Answer
    B. Gratuity
    Explanation
    Gratuity is the correct answer because it refers to an additional payment, usually in the form of a tip, given to someone in appreciation for their service. In this context, "another term for the tip" suggests that the answer should be a word or phrase that is synonymous with giving a tip, and gratuity fits this description. The other options, "A La Mode," "On the rocks," and "Escargot," are unrelated to tipping and do not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Improper etiquette

    Correct Answer
    A. A la mode
    Explanation
    A dessert served with ice cream is considered "a la mode". This term is commonly used to describe a dessert that is served with a scoop of ice cream on top. It originated from the French language and translates to "in the fashion" or "in the style". The addition of ice cream enhances the taste and texture of the dessert, making it a popular choice among many.

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    Explanation
    When dining in a restaurant and accidentally dropping a fork on the floor, it is best to leave it on the floor, inform the server of where it dropped, and ask for a new one. This is the most hygienic and appropriate response, ensuring that you receive a clean utensil to use.

    Bring copies of your resume to a job interview _________________.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to bring copies of your resume to a job interview because it allows you to provide a physical copy of your qualifications and experiences to the interviewer. This can help them to easily reference your information during the interview and can also demonstrate your preparedness and professionalism. Additionally, having extra copies of your resume can be useful in case there are multiple interviewers or if you need to provide a copy to someone you may meet during the interview process.

    When you are dining with someone important and your cell phone rings, you:

      Answer it within two rings and keep the call brief

    • B.

      Ignore it and pretend that someone else’s phone is ringing

    • C.

      Apologize and turn the phone on silent mode. The person you’re with takes priority.

    • D.

      Apologize, step away from the table, and take the call in the lobby or restroom.

    Correct Answer
    C. Apologize and turn the phone on silent mode. The person you’re with takes priority.
    Explanation
    When dining with someone important, it is considered polite and respectful to prioritize the person you are with. Answering the phone within two rings and keeping the call brief may still disrupt the conversation and show a lack of respect. Ignoring the call and pretending it is someone else's phone ringing is dishonest and can also be seen as disrespectful. Apologizing and turning the phone on silent mode shows that you acknowledge the interruption and prioritize the person you are dining with.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that it is impolite to waste food and advises asking for a doggy bag to bring home leftovers. However, this explanation is incorrect because it is not impolite to waste food in all situations.

Therefore, it is not necessary to ask for a doggy bag in all cases, making the correct answer False.

    • D.

      No credit cards accepted

    Explanation
    If a restaurant menu says "à la carte," it means that each item on the menu is priced separately. This means that customers can choose individual dishes or items from the menu and pay for them individually, rather than ordering a set meal or a fixed-price menu. This allows customers to have more flexibility in their choices and only pay for what they actually want to eat.
