  • 3. 

    A traditional understanding of the context of communication speaks of it as a linear process between two people.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that a traditional understanding of communication does indeed view it as a linear process between two people. This means that communication is seen as a one-way flow of information from a sender to a receiver, with little emphasis on feedback or interaction. This traditional model has been criticized in recent years for being too simplistic and not accounting for the complexities of communication in today's society, but it is still commonly taught and understood.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The process of communication consists of the following elements: (Select four)

    • A.

      A sender

    • B.

      A receiver

    • C.

      A feature

    • D.

      Feedback

    • E.

      Environment

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A sender
    B. A receiver
    D. Feedback
    E. Environment
    Explanation
    The process of communication involves several key elements. A sender is the person or entity who initiates the communication by sending a message. A receiver is the person or entity who receives and interprets the message sent by the sender. Feedback is an essential element as it allows the sender to understand how the message was received and whether it was understood correctly. The environment in which the communication takes place also plays a crucial role in shaping the communication process.

    The person with dementia may experience sensory deficits that may have an impact on their ability to receive the information being communicated.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    People with dementia often experience sensory deficits, such as hearing or vision impairment, that can affect their ability to receive and process information. These deficits can make it challenging for them to understand and interpret verbal and non-verbal communication cues. As a result, they may struggle to comprehend and respond appropriately to the information being communicated to them. Therefore, it is true that sensory deficits can have an impact on a person with dementia's ability to receive information.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ______ of all our communication is not through the use of words alone.

    • A.

      80%

    • B.

      85%

    • C.

      90%

    • D.

      95%

    Correct Answer
    C. 90%
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that a significant portion of our communication is not solely reliant on words. Out of the given options, 90% is the closest percentage to indicate a high proportion of non-verbal communication. This implies that only 10% of our communication is through the use of words alone, while the remaining 90% is conveyed through body language, facial expressions, tone of voice, and other non-verbal cues.
