    • B.

      Your pants pocket

    • C.

      Face-Down on your desk

    • D.

      In your bag

    Correct Answer
    C. Face-Down on your desk
    Explanation
    Having your phone face-down on your desk is not an ideal place for it to be while at the workplace. This is because having your phone easily visible and accessible on your desk can be distracting and may lead to decreased productivity. It is better to keep your phone in places like your coat pocket, pants pocket, or in your bag where it is not within immediate reach and can be easily ignored while focusing on work tasks.

It can be seen as disrespectful and unprofessional, as it gives the impression that you are not taking the meeting seriously or valuing the time and effort of others. Additionally, constantly looking at your phone can be distracting not only for yourself but also for those around you, disrupting the flow of the meeting and potentially affecting productivity.
