    Explanation
    Dependency and Emotion are indicators of motivation because they both play a significant role in driving and influencing behavior. Dependency refers to the extent to which an individual relies on others or external factors for support, resources, or guidance. When someone is motivated, they may seek assistance or rely on others to help them achieve their goals. Emotion, on the other hand, is closely linked to motivation as it can fuel and intensify one's drive to pursue certain actions or outcomes. Strong emotions such as passion, excitement, or determination can serve as powerful motivators, pushing individuals to work towards their objectives.

    Eye contact is always advisable.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Eye contact is not always advisable. While eye contact can be seen as a sign of attentiveness and respect in many cultures, there are situations where maintaining eye contact may be inappropriate or uncomfortable. For example, in some cultures, prolonged eye contact can be seen as confrontational or disrespectful. Additionally, individuals with certain social or psychological conditions may find direct eye contact overwhelming or distressing. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that eye contact is always advisable.
