  • 12. 

    Make eye contact with __________, not __________.

    Correct Answer
    people things
    people objects
    Explanation
    When making eye contact, it is important to focus on people rather than things or objects. This is because eye contact is a nonverbal form of communication that helps establish a connection and show interest in the other person. By maintaining eye contact with people, we convey respect, attentiveness, and engagement in the conversation. On the other hand, looking at things or objects instead of people can be perceived as disinterest or lack of attention.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Your nonverbal communication does not deliver your words, but it does deliver your __________.

    Correct Answer
    attitude
    Explanation
    Nonverbal communication refers to the use of body language, facial expressions, gestures, and tone of voice to convey messages. While words are important in communication, they are not the only factor that influences how a message is received. Nonverbal cues, such as posture, eye contact, and facial expressions, play a significant role in conveying one's attitude. These nonverbal signals can reveal emotions, intentions, and overall attitude, often more accurately than words alone. Therefore, nonverbal communication delivers one's attitude, providing insight into their thoughts, feelings, and overall demeanor.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    You speak in a __________ when you deliver all of your words methodically at almost the same rate and pitch.

    Correct Answer
    monotone
    Explanation
    When you speak in a monotone, you deliver all of your words methodically at almost the same rate and pitch. This means that there is very little variation in the tone, rhythm, or melody of your voice. Speaking in a monotone can make your speech sound dull, lacking emotion or emphasis. It can also make it difficult for listeners to stay engaged or understand the important points you are trying to convey.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    We need __________ to produce sound.

    Correct Answer
    air
    Explanation
    Air is needed to produce sound because sound is created by the vibration of particles. When an object vibrates, it causes the air particles around it to vibrate as well. These vibrations then travel through the air as sound waves, which can be detected by our ears. Without air, there would be no medium for the sound waves to travel through, and therefore no sound would be produced.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The __________ delivery method uses a speech written down word for word.

    Correct Answer
    manuscript
    Explanation
    The term "manuscript" refers to a speech that is written down word for word. This means that the speaker follows a written script and reads it aloud during the delivery. This method is often used in situations where precision and accuracy of the message are crucial, or when the speaker wants to ensure that they do not miss any important points. By delivering a manuscript speech, the speaker can ensure that their words are carefully chosen and rehearsed, minimizing the chances of mistakes or improvisation.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    In __________ speaking, you will be given a limited amount of time to develop a speech to be delivered at that time.

    Correct Answer
    impromptu
    Explanation
    In impromptu speaking, individuals are given a limited amount of time to develop a speech that they will deliver on the spot. This type of speaking requires quick thinking and improvisation skills, as there is no prior preparation or planning involved. It tests the speaker's ability to organize their thoughts and deliver a coherent and persuasive speech in a short amount of time. Impromptu speaking is often used in public speaking competitions or situations where individuals need to think on their feet and respond to unexpected topics or questions.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    In __________ speaking, you use notes, usually in the form of an outline. This is also the type of delivery method that will be used most in this class.

    Correct Answer
    extemporaneous
    Explanation
    Extemporaneous speaking involves using notes, typically in the form of an outline, to deliver a speech. This method allows the speaker to have a general structure and key points to guide them, while still allowing for flexibility and adaptability during the delivery. In this class, the extemporaneous delivery method will be used the most, indicating that students will be expected to prepare and deliver speeches using outlines or notes.

    Explanation

The teeth, lips, and tongue play crucial roles in shaping the airflow and creating different sounds by coming into contact or moving in specific ways.
