  • 3. 

    What kind of meetings are those that only take place once or at irregular times?

    • A. 

      Informal

    • B. 

      Formal

    Correct Answer
    A. Informal
    Explanation
    Informal meetings are those that only take place once or at irregular times. Unlike formal meetings which follow a structured agenda and protocol, informal meetings are more relaxed and spontaneous in nature. They are often impromptu gatherings where participants discuss ideas, share information, and collaborate without strict rules or procedures. These meetings are characterized by their flexibility and lack of formality, allowing for open and free-flowing conversations.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Minutes should be prepared and circulated as soon as possible after the meeting. Why is this?

    • A. 

      It demonstrates that those organising the meeting are punctual and organised

    • B. 

      Those who were absent from the meeting can be informed

    • C. 

      It is considered polite

    Correct Answer
    B. Those who were absent from the meeting can be informed
    Explanation
    Preparing and circulating minutes as soon as possible after a meeting is important because it allows those who were absent from the meeting to be informed. By providing a detailed summary of the discussions, decisions, and action items, absentees can stay updated on what transpired during the meeting. This ensures that everyone is on the same page and can contribute effectively in future discussions. Additionally, it shows respect and consideration towards those who were unable to attend, keeping them informed and involved in the decision-making process.

  • 5. 

    Assertive and aggressive are exchangeable terms.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that "assertive" and "aggressive" can be used interchangeably, meaning they have the same meaning. However, this is not true. While both terms refer to expressing oneself forcefully, assertive behavior is assertive while respecting the rights and opinions of others, whereas aggressive behavior involves disregarding the rights and opinions of others. Therefore, assertive and aggressive are not exchangeable terms.

    Explanation
