They can help to illustrate complex ideas, provide supporting evidence, and make the speech more visually appealing. By incorporating visual aids, the speaker can effectively communicate their message and make a lasting impression on the audience.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    If you are representing Russia and you've just finished your speech during a Moderated Caucus, which answer would guarantee a great score to the Chair's Statement:"Delegate, You have 15 seconds remaining"?  

    • A.

      The delegate of Russia yields his/her time to the chair.

    • B.

      The delegate of Russia yields his/her time to another delegate.

    • C.

      Thank you

    • D.

      I yield my time to the Chair

    Correct Answer
    C. Thank you
    Explanation
    The answer "Thank you" would guarantee a great score in the Chair's Statement because it shows politeness and gratitude towards the chair for allowing the delegate to speak. It also indicates that the delegate has finished their speech and is ready to yield their remaining time. This response demonstrates professionalism and respect towards the chair, which would be highly appreciated and likely result in a positive score.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    After the delegates motion to set the agenda to topic A, the chair will have at least one speaker to speak in favor of topic A and one to speak against it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the question states that "the chair will have at least one speaker to speak in favor of topic A and one to speak against it." However, this statement does not guarantee that there will be speakers for both sides. It is possible that there may be only one speaker in favor of topic A and no one to speak against it, or vice versa. Therefore, the statement is not necessarily true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Setting the agenda for a topic requires...

    • A.

      A simple majority (50%+1)

    • B.

      2/3rd majority

    • C.

      Unanimous voting

    • D.

      More than 20 delegates to agree on the same topic

    Correct Answer
    A. A simple majority (50%+1)
    Explanation
    Setting the agenda for a topic requires a simple majority (50%+1). This means that more than half of the participants or delegates need to agree on a particular topic in order for it to be included in the agenda. This ensures that the decision is made by a majority and allows for efficient decision-making without requiring unanimous voting or a higher threshold like a 2/3rd majority. Additionally, the requirement of more than 20 delegates to agree on the same topic is not mentioned in the question and therefore not relevant to setting the agenda.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The formal debate consists of a ‘Speaker’s List’, which is a series of speakers that will continue until the end of the conference.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a formal debate, a "Speaker's List" is a common practice where a series of speakers is established and will continue until the end of the conference. This ensures that each participant gets a chance to speak and present their arguments or opinions. Therefore, the statement "The formal debate consists of a 'Speaker's List', which is a series of speakers that will continue until the end of the conference" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The speaker's list has...

    • A.

      A subtopic and a speaker's time

    • B.

      A speaker's time

    • C.

      A total time

    • D.

      A total time, a speaker's time and a subtopic

    Correct Answer
    B. A speaker's time
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A speaker's time" because the speaker's list typically includes the allocated time for each speaker to present their topic. This allows for proper time management during the event or presentation. The other options mentioned, such as a subtopic and a total time, may also be included in a speaker's list, but the essential element is the speaker's time.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Formal debate consists of 

    • A.

      The moderated caucus and the speaker's list

    • B.

      Everything except the unmoderated caucus.

    • C.

      All the parts of the final conference that include giving speeches

    • D.

      The speaker's list

    Correct Answer
    D. The speaker's list
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the speaker's list. The speaker's list is a part of formal debate where participants are given the opportunity to deliver speeches. It is one of the components of the final conference where individuals can express their opinions and arguments on the topic being discussed. The moderated caucus and unmoderated caucus are also parts of formal debate, but they are not included in the answer as they are not specifically mentioned.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The speaker's list is always (at any time) about the topic in general and your country's stance.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the speaker's list always focuses on the topic in general and the stance of one's country. However, the correct answer is false, indicating that the statement is incorrect. This implies that the speaker's list may not always be exclusively about the topic in general and the country's stance. There could be other factors or perspectives that influence the content of the speaker's list.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Usually, the main purpose of the moderated caucus is to form blocs and alliances and to work towards drafting resolutions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The main purpose of the moderated caucus is not to form blocs and alliances and work towards drafting resolutions. The moderated caucus is a structured debate format in which delegates discuss a specific topic in a more organized and controlled manner. It allows for focused discussions and the exchange of ideas among delegates, but the formation of blocs and alliances and the drafting of resolutions typically occur during unmoderated caucuses or formal sessions.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    In a moderated caucus, we can NOT discuss the ideas written in our working paper or draft resolution.This is the purpose of the consultation of the whole.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In a moderated caucus, participants are allowed to discuss the ideas written in their working paper or draft resolution. The purpose of the consultation of the whole is to provide an opportunity for all delegates to share their opinions and ideas on the proposed documents. Therefore, the statement that we cannot discuss the ideas written in our working paper or draft resolution during a moderated caucus is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    In a consultation of the whole , who decides the next speaker?

    • A.

      The chair

    • B.

      The simple majority(50%+1)

    • C.

      2/3rd majority

    • D.

      The delegate on the podium

    Correct Answer
    D. The delegate on the podium
    Explanation
    In a consultation of the whole, the delegate on the podium decides the next speaker. This means that the person currently speaking has the authority to choose who will speak next. They may select someone based on their expertise, relevance to the topic, or any other criteria they deem important. This allows for a smooth flow of discussion and ensures that everyone gets a chance to contribute to the conversation.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    You're the delegate of the USA and have just made a motion for a moderated caucus. Your motion passed. The chair chooses ....... as the first speaker.

    • A.

      The USA or any of its allies

    • B.

      The chair chooses randomly

    • C.

      A delegate that hasn't spoken yet in former caucuses or speaker's list

    • D.

      The USA

    Correct Answer
    D. The USA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The USA." As the delegate of the USA, you made the motion for a moderated caucus, and your motion passed. Therefore, it is logical for the chair to choose you, the delegate of the USA, as the first speaker in the moderated caucus.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    After we've voted for the draft resolution,we begin voting on the amendments.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because according to the given information, it states that after voting for the draft resolution, the voting on the amendments begins. Therefore, the correct answer is false as it contradicts the statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    A written motion should always be supported by another delegate declaring "Second"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In parliamentary procedure, a written motion does not necessarily need to be supported by another delegate declaring "Second." The act of "Seconding" a motion is a common practice in some organizations, where it shows that at least two members are in favor of discussing the motion. However, it is not a universal requirement, and a written motion can still be valid and proceed without a second. Therefore, the answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    In case several delegates motioned to set the speaker’s list, the chair will start voting on the most destructive motion,which means to start voting on...

    • A.

      The motion with the first topic

    • B.

      The motion with the longest topic to resolve; hence, it is the most destructive

    • C.

      The motion with the longest total time

    • D.

      The motion declared by the most powerful delegate/country.

    Correct Answer
    C. The motion with the longest total time
    Explanation
    The chair will start voting on the motion with the longest total time because it is considered the most destructive motion. This is because the longer a motion takes to resolve, the more time it will consume during the meeting, potentially delaying or hindering the progress of other important agenda items. By addressing the motion with the longest total time first, the chair ensures that the meeting can proceed more efficiently.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which of these motions is correct?

    • A.

      “ Country X wishes to suspend the debate for a consultation of the whole to discuss SubTopic A for a speaker’s time of 60 seconds and a total time of 7 mins”.

    • B.

      "Country X motions to suspend the debate into an unmoderated caucus to work on the draft resolutions. "

    • C.

      “ Country X wishes to suspend the debate for a moderated caucus to discuss SubTopic A for a speaker’s time of 45 seconds and a total time of 3 mins”.

    • D.

      "Country X motions to solicit a third party being that the third party is important to the resolution of the problem for a speaker's time of 5 min".

    Correct Answer
    C. “ Country X wishes to suspend the debate for a moderated caucus to discuss SubTopic A for a speaker’s time of 45 seconds and a total time of 3 mins”.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Country X wishes to suspend the debate for a moderated caucus to discuss SubTopic A for a speaker’s time of 45 seconds and a total time of 3 mins". This is the correct motion because it specifies the type of caucus (moderated) and the topic of discussion (SubTopic A). It also provides the duration for each speaker (45 seconds) and the total time for the caucus (3 minutes). This motion clearly outlines the purpose and parameters of the caucus, making it the correct choice.

  • 18. 

    Which of these statements is true?

    • A.

      An unmoderated caucus can be extended once.

    • B.

      An unmoderated caucus can be extended more than once.

    • C.

      An unmoderated caucus can never be extended .

    • D.

      An unmoderated caucus can be extended , only if all the delegates in the multiple blocks agree on this extension.

    Correct Answer
    A. An unmoderated caucus can be extended once.
    Explanation
    An unmoderated caucus refers to a period of time during a meeting where delegates can freely discuss and exchange ideas without any formal rules or moderation. The correct answer states that an unmoderated caucus can be extended once, indicating that it is possible to prolong the duration of the discussion for an additional period of time. However, it suggests that multiple extensions are not allowed, implying that there is a limit to the number of times an unmoderated caucus can be prolonged.

  • 20. 

    Which statement is false?

    • A.

      Motion to close the debate marks the end of the debate. After this motion passes, the committee moves into the voting procedure.

      Motion to close the debate requires simple majority.(50%+1)

    • D.

      Usually, the meeting is adjourned for lunch break and at the end of the first day of the conference.(Motion to adjourn the meeting).

    Correct Answer
    C. Motion to close the debate requires simple majority.(50%+1)
    Explanation
    The statement "Motion to close the debate requires simple majority (50%+1)" is false. In parliamentary procedure, a motion to close the debate typically requires a two-thirds majority vote rather than a simple majority. This is to ensure that all members have a fair opportunity to express their opinions and that a significant majority agrees to end the debate.

The right of reply allows a member who has been personally attacked or misrepresented to respond to the accusation or statement made against them. These written motions provide a structured and fair way for members to address and resolve disputes or issues that may arise during a meeting.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A delegate raising a point of order does not necessarily believe that only the Chair is mistaken. They may believe that other participants or the entire assembly is mistaken as well. Therefore, the statement is false.

    In which situations can delegates raise points of information?

    • A.

      When the chair asks :"Are there any points or motions on the floor?"

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. During the formal debate and when the delegate yields his/her time to questions.
    D. When the chair opens the floor for questions
    Explanation
    Delegates can raise points of information during the formal debate when they have a question or comment to make. They can also raise points of information when they yield their time to questions, allowing other delegates to ask them questions. Additionally, delegates can raise points of information when the chair opens the floor for questions, giving them an opportunity to ask questions or make comments.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Delegates can not yield yielded time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Delegates cannot yield yielded time because once a delegate has yielded their time, they have already given up their opportunity to speak or contribute. Therefore, it is not possible for them to yield the same time again.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    After having  left unused time in the speaker's time in a Moderated Caucus, the delegate can ...

    • A.

      Yield to the chair

    • B.

      Yield to another delegate

    • C.

      Yield to questions

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above.
    Explanation
    After having left unused time in the speaker's time in a Moderated Caucus, the delegate does not have the option to yield to the chair, yield to another delegate, or yield to questions. Yielding to the chair means giving up the remaining speaking time to the chairperson. Yielding to another delegate means giving up the remaining speaking time to another delegate. Yielding to questions means allowing other delegates to ask questions during the remaining speaking time. Since none of these options are available, the correct answer is "None of the above."

    Rate this question:

  • 27.

    • A.

      Point of parliamentary procedure

    • B.

      Right of Reply

    • C.

      Point of Personal Privilege

    • D.

      Point of Order

    Correct Answer
    D. Point of Order
    Explanation
    If a delegate mistakenly refers to you as "North Sudan" instead of "South Sudan" in their speech, your best option would be to raise a Point of Order. This is because a Point of Order is used to address a violation of the rules or procedures of the meeting. In this case, the delegate's mistake is a violation of proper protocol and accuracy in referring to countries. By raising a Point of Order, you can bring attention to the error and request that the mistake be corrected.

    • D.

      Declare that you do not know

    Correct Answer
    B. Try to answer in a general and smart way , ensuring that there is no loophole or mistake in your answer.
    Explanation
    When asked a question concerning your speech and you do NOT know the answer, the best approach is to try to answer in a general and smart way, ensuring that there is no loophole or mistake in your answer. This shows that you are still knowledgeable and can provide a thoughtful response, even if you don't have the specific information being asked for. It also helps maintain your credibility and professionalism in the situation. Creating false statistics, blaming the delegate or declaring that you don't know would not be appropriate or effective approaches in this scenario.
