    • I.

      Entertainment, Recreation, and or refreshments

    Correct Answer
    E. Advisor Report
    Explanation
    The Advisor Report is not an Order of Business because it is not a standard item that is typically included in the agenda of a meeting. The other options listed, such as Opening Ceremony, Minutes of the previous meeting, Officer Reports, Committee Reports, New Business, Ceremonies, Closing Ceremony, and Entertainment, Recreation, and or refreshments, are all common items that are typically included in the Order of Business for a meeting. The Advisor Report may be included as a separate item or as part of Officer Reports or Committee Reports, but it is not a standalone Order of Business item.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which of the following is NOT a Privileged Motion?

    • A.

      To Lay on the Table

    • B.

      To Adjourn

    • C.

      To Recess

    • D.

      Call for the Orders of the day

    Correct Answer
    A. To Lay on the Table
    Explanation
    To Lay on the Table is not a Privileged Motion because Privileged Motions are motions that have the highest precedence and can interrupt the normal order of business. They are typically urgent matters that require immediate attention. However, To Lay on the Table is a subsidiary motion that allows a pending motion to be set aside temporarily, without a direct vote on the pending motion itself. It does not have the same level of urgency or importance as the other options listed, which are all examples of Privileged Motions.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Which of the following is NOT a Subsidiary Motion?

    • A.

      To Lay on the Table

    • B.

      To Recess

    • C.

      To Amend

    • D.

      Previous Question

    Correct Answer
    B. To Recess
    Explanation
    To recess is not a subsidiary motion because it is considered a main motion. Subsidiary motions are used to modify or delay action on a main motion, while a recess motion is used to temporarily suspend the meeting or adjourn for a specific period of time. Therefore, it does not fall under the category of subsidiary motions.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Which of the following is not an Incidental Motion?

    • A.

      To Postpone Indefinitely

    • B.

      To Suspend the Rules

    • C.

      To Withdraw a Motion

    • D.

      To Appeal

    Correct Answer
    A. To Postpone Indefinitely
    Explanation
    To Postpone Indefinitely is not an Incidental Motion because it is a main motion rather than a procedural motion. Incidental Motions are used to address specific issues that arise during a meeting, such as clarifying a motion or changing the order of business. To Postpone Indefinitely, on the other hand, is a motion that seeks to kill a main motion without a direct vote on the merits of the main motion. It is a substantive motion that requires a full debate and vote, making it distinct from the other options listed, which are all examples of procedural motions.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Which of the following is NOT a Motion That Brings A Question Before the Assembly?

    • A.

      To reconsider

    • B.

      To Rescind

    • C.

      To Withdraw A Motion

    • D.

      To Discharge A Committee

    Correct Answer
    C. To Withdraw A Motion
    Explanation
    To withdraw a motion is not a motion that brings a question before the assembly. When a member wishes to remove their own motion from consideration, they can request to withdraw it. This does not require a vote or any formal action from the assembly. The motion to reconsider allows the assembly to review a previously made decision, the motion to rescind allows the assembly to cancel or revoke a previous action, and the motion to discharge a committee allows the assembly to dissolve a committee and take over its responsibilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    All Privileged Motions are NOT debatable.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Privileged motions are a category of motions in parliamentary procedure that are considered urgent and take precedence over other business. These motions are typically related to matters of high importance or emergencies. One characteristic of privileged motions is that they are not debatable, meaning that they cannot be discussed or argued upon before a vote is taken. Therefore, the statement "All Privileged Motions are NOT debatable" is true, as it correctly captures this aspect of privileged motions.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    All Subsidiary Motions cannot be Interrupted.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    All subsidiary motions cannot be interrupted because they are designed to assist the main motion and follow a specific order. Subsidiary motions are used to modify or delay the main motion, and they must be considered before any other business can be conducted. Since they have a specific purpose and order, they cannot be interrupted by other motions or actions. Therefore, the statement that all subsidiary motions cannot be interrupted is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    All Subsidiary Motions cannot be Seconded.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "All Subsidiary Motions cannot be Seconded" is false. Subsidiary motions, which are used to modify or delay the main motion in a meeting, can indeed be seconded. Seconding a motion means that another member supports the motion and it can be discussed and voted on by the group. Therefore, subsidiary motions can be seconded just like any other type of motion in a meeting.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    Most Subsidiary Motions can be reconsidered.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Most Subsidiary Motions can be reconsidered because subsidiary motions are used to modify or delay the main motion. They are designed to help the group make decisions and ensure that the main motion is properly discussed and considered. Reconsideration is a common practice in parliamentary procedure, allowing members to revisit a decision and potentially change their vote. Therefore, it is likely that most subsidiary motions can be reconsidered to ensure a fair and thorough decision-making process.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    All "Motions that bring a question before the assembly" cannot be interrupted.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because "Motions that bring a question before the assembly" can be interrupted. In parliamentary procedure, there are certain motions that can interrupt the current discussion and take precedence over other motions. These interrupting motions include the motion to adjourn, the motion to recess, and the motion to reconsider, among others. Therefore, not all motions that bring a question before the assembly are immune to interruption.
