    Correct Answer
    D. Pass aids around so the audience can experience them
    Explanation

    Explanation
    Balance deals with the feeling of equilibrium—a feeling of stability, symmetry, and calm. It refers to the distribution of visual weight in a composition, where elements are arranged in a way that creates a sense of harmony and equilibrium. When a design is balanced, it feels visually stable and calm, giving a sense of order and completeness.

    Correct Answer
    D. Pattern
    Explanation
    The principle of pattern recommends creating a design format and using it consistently. This means repeating certain elements or motifs throughout the design to create a sense of cohesion and visual interest. By establishing a pattern, the design becomes more predictable and organized, which can help guide the viewer's eye and create a harmonious composition.

    • A.

    • C.

      Balance

    • D.

      Emphasis

    Correct Answer
    B. Unity
    Explanation
    Unity is the principle that recognizes the need for the elements used in a design to connect or relate to each other. In design, unity creates a sense of harmony and coherence by ensuring that all elements work together to convey a unified message or theme. It helps to establish a visual relationship between different elements, such as colors, shapes, textures, and fonts, making the design feel cohesive and organized. By achieving unity, designers can create a visually pleasing and effective composition that communicates their intended message clearly to the audience.

    Which of the following is NOT a helpful hint to using handouts? a. make about 10 percent more than you think you will need b. include a title, date, your name, and contact information c. hand them out during your introduction d. make sure they look professionally made

    • A.

      Make about 10 percent more than you think you will need

    • B.

      Include a title, date, your name, and contact information

    • C.

      Hand them out during your introduction

    • D.

      Make sure they look professionally made

    Correct Answer
    C. Hand them out during your introduction
    Explanation
    Handing out handouts during your introduction is not a helpful hint to using handouts because it can distract the audience from listening to your introduction and shift their focus to the handouts instead. It is more effective to hand out the handouts after your introduction or at a specific point in your presentation where they are relevant and can be used as a reference.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is NOT true about handouts?

    • A.

      They can contain large amounts of information.

    • B.

      They are good as a backup to other aids.

    • C.

      They are good to hand out at the beginning of your speech.

    • D.

      They are good to use when details are too small to be effective on other types of presentation aids.

    Correct Answer
    C. They are good to hand out at the beginning of your speech.
    Explanation
    Handouts are typically used as a backup to other aids, providing additional information or resources to support a presentation. They can contain large amounts of information that may be too detailed or small to effectively convey on other types of presentation aids. However, handing out handouts at the beginning of a speech can be distracting for the audience and may cause them to focus more on reading the handout rather than listening to the speaker. Therefore, it is not true that handouts are good to hand out at the beginning of a speech.

    Which of the following is NOT an example of when to use a poster as a presentation aid? 

    • A.

      When you don’t have or trust electronic equipment

    • B.

      To demonstrate a sequence or change over time

    • C.

      For large group presentations

    • D.

      When you want to condense information

    Correct Answer
    C. For large group presentations
    Explanation
    A poster can be used effectively for large group presentations as it allows the audience to visually engage with the information being presented. The large size of the poster ensures that everyone in the group can easily see the content. Additionally, posters can be easily displayed in a room, making them suitable for presentations to a large number of people. Therefore, using a poster for large group presentations is a valid example of when to use a poster as a presentation aid.

    • B.

      When you want to build your ethos.

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    B. When you want to build your ethos.
    Explanation
    Whiteboards and chalkboards are visual aids that are commonly used to present information or explain concepts. They are effective tools for brainstorming with the audience, as they allow for ideas to be easily written down and shared. They can also be used as a backup to other presentation aids, providing a visual element to support the main message. However, when it comes to building ethos, which refers to establishing credibility and trust with the audience, whiteboards and chalkboards may not be the most effective choice. Building ethos typically involves using other techniques such as storytelling, personal anecdotes, or providing evidence and expert opinions.
