    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the statement states that the water and wine glasses are located to the right above the plate. Since it does not mention any other location or placement, it can be inferred that the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    As soon as everyone is seated...

    • A.

      Place your napkin on your lap

    • B.

      Tuck your napkin into your collar

    • C.

      Leave the napkin on the table until your food arrives

    Correct Answer
    A. Place your napkin on your lap
    Explanation
    When everyone is seated, it is customary to place your napkin on your lap. This is considered good table manners and shows respect for the meal and the company. Tucking the napkin into your collar is not appropriate and leaving it on the table until the food arrives may be seen as untidy or disrespectful. Therefore, the correct answer is to place the napkin on your lap.

  • 3. 

    When someone asks for the salt, you should only pass the salt.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that when someone asks for the salt, you should only pass the salt. However, this is not always the case. People may have different preferences or dietary restrictions, so it is important to consider their needs and ask if they want anything else or if they have any specific requirements. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If there are two or three forks on the table, you should start by using the fork closest to your plate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because the correct etiquette is to start with the outermost fork and work your way in towards the plate as each course is served. Therefore, if there are two or three forks on the table, you should start with the fork farthest from your plate, not the closest.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What should you do if a piece of food falls on the floor?

    • A.

      5 second rule! Pick it up and eat it.

    • B.

      Leave it on the floor and make sure you don't step on it.

    • C.

      Pick it back up and place it on your plate.

    Correct Answer
    B. Leave it on the floor and make sure you don't step on it.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to leave the food on the floor and make sure you don't step on it. This is because when food falls on the floor, it can come into contact with bacteria and other contaminants that may cause illness if consumed. Even if the floor appears clean, it is still best to err on the side of caution and avoid eating food that has fallen on the floor.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    If there are bones in your food, it's okay to spit them out onto your plate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Spitting out bones onto your plate is not okay because it is considered impolite and unhygienic. It is generally expected that if you encounter bones in your food, you discreetly remove them from your mouth using a napkin or your fingers and place them on the side of your plate. This allows you to continue eating without causing any discomfort or inconvenience to yourself or others dining with you.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The dessert fork and knife are located above your plate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is true because traditionally, the dessert fork and knife are placed above the plate in a table setting. This allows for easy access when it is time to eat dessert. Placing them above the plate also helps to maintain a neat and organized table arrangement.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    When leaving the table to use the restroom, you should place your napkin back on the table.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When leaving the table to use the restroom, you should not place your napkin back on the table. Instead, it is considered proper etiquette to place the napkin on your chair to signal that you will be returning. This indicates to the server and other diners that you have not finished your meal and will be back shortly. Placing the napkin on the table may give the impression that you are finished and signal the server to clear your place setting.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When the check arrives at the table...

    • A.

      Pull out your wallet and pass money down to the host.

    • B.

      Leave the check and tip for the host to take care of.

    Correct Answer
    B. Leave the check and tip for the host to take care of.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to leave the check and tip for the host to take care of. This is because it is customary for the host or person who invited others to a meal to handle the bill. It is considered polite and a gesture of gratitude for the host to take care of the expenses.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    When you are finished with dinner, place the napkin on the center of your plate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Placing the napkin on the center of your plate after finishing dinner is not the correct etiquette. The correct etiquette is to place the napkin neatly to the left of your plate, either folded or loosely laid. Placing it on the center of the plate may indicate that you are finished with the meal, which can be considered impolite or disrespectful to the host.
