    Correct Answer
    A. High context communication includes saying things out loud and clear
    Explanation
    High context communication refers to a communication style where the meaning is conveyed through implicit messages, relying on context, nonverbal cues, and shared understanding. It is not about saying things out loud and clear, as that would be characteristic of low context communication. While it is true that high context communication is preferred by most Asian cultures, it does not mean that it is about never being direct. Therefore, the correct statement is that high context communication is about implicit messages.

    Correct Answer
    D. Non-verbal communication varies across cultures
    Explanation
    Non-verbal communication varies across cultures because different cultures have different norms, values, and interpretations of non-verbal cues. Gestures, facial expressions, body language, and even eye contact can have different meanings or be interpreted differently in different cultures. What may be considered as a positive gesture in one culture, may be seen as offensive in another. Therefore, it is important to understand and adapt to the non-verbal communication norms of different cultures in order to effectively communicate and avoid misunderstandings.
