    Correct Answer
    A. Eliminate speaker nervousness.
    Explanation
    An outline helps you do all of the following EXCEPT eliminate speaker nervousness. An outline is a tool that helps you organize your thoughts and structure your speech, but it does not directly address or eliminate the issue of nervousness that a speaker may experience. Speaker nervousness is a separate issue that can be addressed through various techniques such as practice, deep breathing exercises, and positive visualization.

    B. It contains more than one idea.
    Explanation
    The main point in the preparation outline is flawed because it contains more than one idea. The statement combines two separate ideas, which are credit card abuse being a serious problem in America and the need for new regulations to combat it. A main point should focus on a single idea to maintain clarity and coherence in the outline.

Ending a speech with a WOW statement ensures that the audience will remember the key points and themes of the speech long after it is over. A WOW statement can be a thought-provoking quote, a surprising statistic, or a compelling story that reinforces the main message of the speech.

      Formal outlines.

    • C.

      Working outlines.

    B. Formal outlines.
    Explanation
    Preparation outlines are also called formal outlines because they are organized and structured outlines that provide a detailed plan for a speech or presentation. These outlines include headings, subheadings, and bullet points to outline the main ideas, supporting details, and the overall structure of the speech. They are typically used to help the speaker stay organized and focused during the presentation and ensure that all important points are covered. Delivery outlines, on the other hand, are more concise and serve as a guide for the speaker during the actual delivery of the speech. Working outlines are rough drafts that may undergo revisions and changes before the final presentation. Speaking outlines are similar to delivery outlines and are used by the speaker as a reference during the speech.
