    • D.

       Adverbial phrase

    Correct Answer
    D.  Adverbial phrase
    Explanation
    In the given sentence, "here" is used to indicate the location where the car is parked. It does not describe the car or modify a noun, so it is not an adjective phrase. It is not functioning as a verb or describing an action, so it is not a verb phrase. "Here" does not function as a noun, so it is not a noun phrase. However, "here" is modifying the verb "parked" and providing additional information about how the car is parked, making it an adverbial phrase.

This resistance can manifest as a refusal to engage in open dialogue or an unwillingness to consider alternative viewpoints. As a result, effective communication becomes difficult, hindering the flow of information and ideas within a group or organization.

It can be given orally through verbal communication or written down in a written format such as comments on an assignment or a report. The flexibility of descriptive feedback allows for different modes of communication to effectively provide information and guidance to the recipient.

    Correct Answer
    A. Face to face interaction
    Explanation
    Face to face interaction is the correct example of oral communication because it involves direct communication between two or more individuals through spoken words. This form of communication allows for immediate feedback, non-verbal cues, and the ability to clarify any confusion in real-time. It also allows for the exchange of emotions and expressions, which enhances understanding and strengthens relationships. Showing graphics, reports, and newspapers are not examples of oral communication as they rely on visual or written means of conveying information.

Non-verbal cues can provide additional context, emphasize certain points, and help to establish trust and rapport with the audience. Therefore, non-verbal communication makes the message stronger by adding depth and clarity to the verbal message.

It is important to give your full attention and show active engagement when communicating with others.

    Explanation
    The communication cycle involves the process of sending and receiving messages between a sender and a receiver.

    A. Look at the person who is speaking
    Explanation
    A good eye contact style is to look at the person who is speaking. This shows that you are actively engaged in the conversation and interested in what the person is saying. It also helps to establish a connection and build rapport with the speaker. Looking here and there or holding a gaze for more than 5 minutes can be distracting or uncomfortable for the speaker, and may give the impression of disinterest or lack of attention. Therefore, the best eye contact style is to maintain focus on the person who is speaking.
