    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that if a friend comes in while you are working, they will receive a 50% discount on food. However, the correct answer is False because the statement does not provide any evidence or reasoning to support the claim. Without any specific conditions or policies mentioned, it is not logical to assume that a friend would automatically receive a discount just because they came in while you were working.

    • A.

      Asking each guest whether they would like to try to the special when taking their order

    • B.

      Offering Patron rather than Jose Cuervo when the guest orders tequila

    • C.

      Offering your own favourites to guests who are undecided

    • D.

      Asking a guest who orders a highball if he/she would like to make it a double

    Correct Answer
    A. Asking each guest whether they would like to try to the special when taking their order
    Explanation
    Asking each guest whether they would like to try the special when taking their order is not a good way to up-sell because it assumes that every guest would be interested in trying the special. This approach may come across as pushy or intrusive, and may not be well received by all guests. It is more effective to offer personalized recommendations based on the guest's preferences or suggest alternatives based on their initial order.

    • C.

      The floor underneath the table

    • D.

      The chair seats and booth cracks

    Correct Answer
    A. The guest's lap

The levels include checking the table surface, the floor underneath the table, and the chair seats and booth cracks. The guest's lap is not included in this check as it is not relevant to the server's responsibilities.

    When sampling a new wine, what is generally the order of the three steps prior to drawing your conclusion?

    • A.

      Smell, look, taste

    • B.

      Taste, smell, look

    Explanation
    When sampling a new wine, the general order of the three steps prior to drawing a conclusion is to first look at the wine, then smell it, and finally taste it. Looking at the wine allows you to observe its color, clarity, and viscosity, which can provide initial clues about its characteristics. Smelling the wine helps to detect its aromas and identify any faults or off-putting scents. Finally, tasting the wine allows you to assess its flavors, acidity, sweetness, and overall balance. By following this order, one can systematically evaluate the wine and make an informed conclusion.

    Explanation
    The question asks about the most common question people may ask about the taste of wine. Out of the given options, "How dry/sweet is it?" is the most likely question to be asked.

  • 15. 

    True or False: colder climates such as BC produce higher-acidity wines

    • A.

      True

    Of the following red wines, which one is generally thought to be the most bold & full-bodied?

    • A.

      Shiraz or Syrah

    • B.

      Cabernet Sauvignon

    • C.

      Cabernet Franc

    • D.

      Pinot Noir

    Correct Answer
    A. Shiraz or Syrah
    Explanation
    Shiraz or Syrah is generally thought to be the most bold and full-bodied red wine. This is because Shiraz or Syrah grapes tend to produce wines with high tannin levels, which contribute to a rich and full-bodied flavor profile. Additionally, these wines often exhibit bold fruit flavors such as blackberry, plum, and black pepper. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are also known for their boldness, but Shiraz or Syrah is typically considered to be even more intense. Pinot Noir, on the other hand, is generally lighter and less full-bodied compared to the other options.

This sequence ensures that the orderer is given the opportunity to taste the wine first, followed by the other guests in a systematic and organized manner.

      None of the above

The Chardonnay's buttery and oaky notes would enhance the richness of the burger, the Shiraz's fruity and spicy characteristics would provide a nice contrast, and the Heritage Block Blend's blend of different red varietals would add complexity to the pairing. Therefore, any of these wines would be a good choice to enjoy with the Loaded Kobe Burger.

    • A.

      Riper grapes = less fermentation

    • B.

      Riper grapes = more fermentation

    • C.

      The further grapes ferment, the more alcohol is produced

    • D.

      The further grapes ferment, the more sugar is produced

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Riper grapes = more fermentation
    C. The further grapes ferment, the more alcohol is produced
    D. The further grapes ferment, the more sugar is produced
    Explanation
    As grapes ripen, they contain more sugar, which acts as food for yeast during fermentation. Therefore, riper grapes tend to undergo more fermentation. During fermentation, yeast consumes sugar and produces alcohol as a byproduct. So, the longer grapes ferment, the more alcohol is produced. Additionally, as fermentation progresses, yeast continues to consume sugar, leading to the production of more sugar. Therefore, the further grapes ferment, the more sugar is produced.
