CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 1

Directions: The sentence has two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Choose the set of words for the blanks which best fits the meaning of the sentence as a whole.

The ___________ of the bomb blast was felt over a/an ___________ of 2 km.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 1 The keywords to find the answer for the first blank are 'bomb blast'. Most suitably here, only the 'impact' of a bomb blast can be 'felt'. Thus, (2) is best suited. Option 3 is incorrect as 'orbit' is generally used in context of celestial objects. Using 'orbit' to define an area impacted through a bomb blast would be contextually incorrect. Option 4 is also incorrect as 'jurisdiction' is used to define the 'extent' of power to make legal decisions. This would be contextually incorrect.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 2

Directions: Out of the given alternatives, choose the one that best expresses the meaning of the underlined part of the sentence.

She would take a deep sigh and lapse into silence.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 2 'Lapse' here means 'pass gradually into (an inferior state or condition)'. It fits with the words 'into silence' to make a phrase 'lapse into silence', which means 'to gradually pass into a worse or less active state or condition'.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 3

Directions: Choose the alternative most opposite in meaning to the given word.

KNAVE

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 3 Explanation for option 1: This could be the antonym of "polite". Hence, this is not a valid option.

Explanation for option 2: "Knave" means "trickster", and "gentleman" is the correct antonym of it.

Explanation for option 3: This is an incorrect option.

Explanation for option 4: This is a synonym.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 4

Directions: Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to the given question out of the four alternatives.

The recent change to all-volunteer armed forces in the United States will eventually produce a gradual increase in the proportion of women in the armed forces and in the variety of women's assignments, but probably not the dramatic gains for women that might have been expected. This is so even though the armed forces operate in an ethos of institutional change oriented toward occupational equality and under the federal sanction of equal pay for equal work. The difficulty is that women are unlikely to be trained for any direct combat operations. A significant portion of the larger society remains uncomfortable as yet with extending equality in this direction. Therefore, for women in the military, the search for equality will still be based on functional equivalence, not identity or even similarity of task. Opportunities seem certain to arise. The growing emphasis on deterrence is bound to offer increasing scope for women to become involved in novel types of non-combat military assignments.

Q. The ‘dramatic gains for women’ and change in the attitude of a ‘significant portion of the larger society’ are logically related to each other in as much as the author puts forward the latter as

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 4 The passage states, "... produce a gradual increase in the proportion of women in the armed forces and in the variety of women’s assignments, but probably not the dramatic gains for women that might have been expected." and "The difficulty is that women are unlikely to be trained for any direct combat operations. A significant portion of the larger society remains uncomfortable as yet with extending equality in this direction." Hence, this indicates the dramatic gains have not been achieved due to the stance of the larger society. Option 4 is too extreme. It implies that gains cannot be achieved for women till the larger society wants it.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 5

Directions: Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to the given question out of the four alternatives.

The recent change to all-volunteer armed forces in the United States will eventually produce a gradual increase in the proportion of women in the armed forces and in the variety of women's assignments, but probably not the dramatic gains for women that might have been expected. This is so even though the armed forces operate in an ethos of institutional change oriented toward occupational equality and under the federal sanction of equal pay for equal work. The difficulty is that women are unlikely to be trained for any direct combat operations. A significant portion of the larger society remains uncomfortable as yet with extending equality in this direction. Therefore, for women in the military, the search for equality will still be based on functional equivalence, not identity or even similarity of task. Opportunities seem certain to arise. The growing emphasis on deterrence is bound to offer increasing scope for women to become involved in novel types of non-combat military assignments.

Q. Which of the following is closest in sense to the word 'novel' used in the passage?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 5 The word 'novel' (adjective) means 'new'. It has a reference to women in the armed forces taking up new assignments besides going into the battlefield.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 6

Directions: Find the word that must replace the underlined word from the given options.

To calculate whether your phone touchscreen has the correct coordinates, you have to install an application.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 6 It means 'to regulate or adjust, to fix, check, or correct the graduations of (a measuring instrument, as a thermometer)'.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 7

Directions: Four alternatives are given for the idiom/phrase underlined in the sentence. Choose the alternative which best expresses its meaning.

After the public meeting, the crowd went haywire.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 7 The phrase 'to go haywire' means to breakdown or cease to function properly; to become out of control.

Thus, option (3) is the correct answer.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 8

Directions: The given sentence may contain only one error in grammar usage, diction (choice of words) or idiom. Select the numbered part that, according to you, contains the error. If there is no error, the answer is (4), i.e. No error.

Knowledge and wisdom makes (1)/ an individual truly complete (2)/ and self-assured. (3)/ No error (4)

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 8 When the subject has a conjunction 'and', it will be considered plural. Plural subjects are followed by a plural verb. So, 'make' should be used instead of 'makes'.

The correct sentence will be -

Knowledge and wisdom make an individual truly complete and self-assured.

Thus, option (1) is the correct answer.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 9

Directions: Read the following passage carefully and then answer the question based on what is stated or implied in the passage.

Many nations now place their faith in capitalism and governments choose it as the strategy to create wealth for their people. The spectacular economic growth seen in Brazil, China and India after the liberalisation of their economies is proof of its enormous potential and success. However, the global banking crisis and the economic recession have left many bewildered. The debates tend to focus on free market operations and forces, their efficiency and their ability for self correction. Issues of justice, integrity and honesty are rarely elaborated to highlight the failure of the global banking system. The apologists of the system continue to justify the success of capitalism and argue that the recent crisis was a blip.

Their arguments betray an ideological bias with the assumptions that an unregulated market is fair and competent, and that the exercise of private greed will be in the larger public interest.

Few recognise the bidirectional relationship between capitalism and greed; that each reinforces the other. Surely, a more honest conceptualisation of the conflicts of interest among the rich and powerful players who have benefited from the system, their biases and ideology is needed; the focus on the wealth creation should also highlight the resultant gross inequity.

Q. With reference to "ideological bias", the passage implies that

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 9 In the passage it has been stated that the apologists of free market system believe that unregulated market is fair and competent. This is an ideological bias because they tend to overlook the defects of free market which are income inequality and exploitation of poor, etc. Therefore, apologists take a one-sided, biased position. Hence, with reference to ''ideological bias'', the passage implies that free market is fair and competent.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 10

Directions: Given below is a sentence consisting of a blank. Identify the most suitable alternative among the given options that fits into the blank to make the sentence logical and meaningful.

Online ad campaigns have _____ millions of people based on psychological traits perceived from a single 'like' on Facebook.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 10 With the help of 'psychological traits' the campaigns can influence or aim at particular kind of buyers. 'Targeted' which means 'aimed' fits this context.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 11

Directions: In the following question, out of the given four alternatives, select the alternative which best expresses the meaning of the Idiom/Phrase.

Banana oil

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 11 'Banana oil' refers to 'insincere or ridiculous talk.'

So, option 2 is the correct answer.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 12

Directions: The question below consists of a set of labelled sentences. These sentences, when properly sequenced, form a coherent paragraph. Select the most logical order of sentences from among the options.

P. Institutions have now the right to change admission rules, charge more fees to attract more people.

Q. The market creates its own filters and slowly the poor lose entry to a system.

R. The state seems to withdraw from education playing a reluctant Father Christmas.

S. The idea of university as a public space, as a commons where subsidies allowed marginals to participate in education with dignity, is lost.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 12 Sentence R forms the opening statement of the context which refers to the situation of state withdrawing from education and market forces taking on it. It is followed by sentence P as 'state...withdraw from education' mentioned in the preceding sentence relates to 'institutions have now the right to change admission rules'. Next in order is sentence S; with institutions' own rules and more fees, the idea of helping/subsidising marginals seems lost. Sentence Q forms the concluding assertion and connects 'marginals' and 'the poor'. So, the correct order is: RPSQ.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 13

Directions: Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to the given question out of the four alternatives.

The recent change to all-volunteer armed forces in the United States will eventually produce a gradual increase in the proportion of women in the armed forces and in the variety of women's assignments, but probably not the dramatic gains for women that might have been expected. This is so even though the armed forces operate in an ethos of institutional change oriented toward occupational equality and under the federal sanction of equal pay for equal work. The difficulty is that women are unlikely to be trained for any direct combat operations. A significant portion of the larger society remains uncomfortable as yet with extending equality in this direction. Therefore, for women in the military, the search for equality will still be based on functional equivalence, not identity or even similarity of task. Opportunities seem certain to arise. The growing emphasis on deterrence is bound to offer increasing scope for women to become involved in novel types of non-combat military assignments.

Q. The primary purpose of the passage is to

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 13 Option 3 is incorrect as the reforms were not made because of the increasing number of women. It was in fact the other way round. Option 1 is incorrect as mentioned in the passage, "but probably not the dramatic gains ... of equal pay for equal work." Option 2 is incorrect because the purpose is not about assignments. Option 4 is correct as the passage discussed what would be the possible outcome of the reforms. It discussed the status of women as a result of the reforms.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 14

Directions: Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to the given question out of the four alternatives.

The recent change to all-volunteer armed forces in the United States will eventually produce a gradual increase in the proportion of women in the armed forces and in the variety of women's assignments, but probably not the dramatic gains for women that might have been expected. This is so even though the armed forces operate in an ethos of institutional change oriented toward occupational equality and under the federal sanction of equal pay for equal work. The difficulty is that women are unlikely to be trained for any direct combat operations. A significant portion of the larger society remains uncomfortable as yet with extending equality in this direction. Therefore, for women in the military, the search for equality will still be based on functional equivalence, not identity or even similarity of task. Opportunities seem certain to arise. The growing emphasis on deterrence is bound to offer increasing scope for women to become involved in novel types of non-combat military assignments.

Q. The passage implies which of the following is a factor conducive to a more equitable representation of women in the United States armed forces than has existed in the past?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 14 As mentioned in the opening sentence, the line "The recent change to all-volunteer armed forces in the United States will eventually produce ..." supports option 4 as the correct answer.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 15

Directions: Out of the given options in the following question, you are needed to identify the best way of writing the sentence in context of the correct usage of standard written English.

Computers may learn from their mistakes and enhance its performance but they need instructions from man to operate.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 15 Option (1) is incorrect because the pronoun 'it' refers to 'computers' which is plural. So, the pronoun should also be plural. 'It' should be replaced by 'they'.

Option (2) is incorrect because the subject of the sentence is 'computers', which is plural, and a plural subject cannot take a singular verb. So 'enhances' should be replaced by 'enhance'.

Option (3) is incorrect because the tense does not match. 'Needed' is a past tense, whereas the complete sentence is in the present tense. So, 'needed' should be replaced by 'need'.

Option (4) is correct because there is no error in the sentence. All errors have been removed such as 'it' into 'they'; 'enhances' into 'enhance'; 'needed' into 'need' and 'its' into 'their'.

The given sentence is incorrect because 'its' has been wrongly used. It corresponds to 'computers' which is plural. Hence 'its' must be replaced by 'their'.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 16

Directions: In the following question, out of the four alternatives, select the alternative which is the best substitute of the phrase.

Misappropriation of money

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 16 'Embezzlement' means theft or misappropriation of funds or money placed in one's trust.

So, option 3 is the correct answer.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 17

Directions: The sentence below has one or two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Choose the word or set of words that, when inserted in the sentence, best fits the meaning of the sentence as a whole.

Water is _________ and even the hardiest plant ________ and dies in Kalahari Desert.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 17 The use of the word 'dies' indicates 'scarcity' of water. Due to scarce water, plant will wilt or shrivel and ultimately 'die'. Only option 3 fits the context.

Option 1 is incorrect as 'flares' means a fire or blaze of light, this does not fit in the context of a plant. Also, 'slake' which means to quench thirst doesn't create any meaning.

Option 2 is incorrect as 'shatters' means to break into pieces, this does not fit much in the context of a plant. Also, 'piquant' which means to having a pleasantly sharp taste or appetizing flavour does not fit in the given context.

Option 4 is incorrect as 'obscures' which means to hide or conceal, this doesn't create meaning in the context of a plant. Also, 'profuse' which means to be abundant is exactly opposite of the what the sentence is trying to convey.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 18

Directions: Read the following passage carefully and then answer the question based on what is stated or implied in the passage.

Many nations now place their faith in capitalism and governments choose it as the strategy to create wealth for their people. The spectacular economic growth seen in Brazil, China and India after the liberalisation of their economies is proof of its enormous potential and success. However, the global banking crisis and the economic recession have left many bewildered. The debates tend to focus on free market operations and forces, their efficiency and their ability for self correction.

The apologists of the system continue to justify the success of capitalism and argue that the recent crisis was a blip.

Their arguments betray an ideological bias with the assumptions that an unregulated market is fair and competent, and that the exercise of private greed will be in the larger public interest.

Few recognise the bidirectional relationship between capitalism and greed; that each reinforces the other. Surely, a more honest conceptualisation of the conflicts of interest among the rich and powerful players who have benefited from the system, their biases and ideology is needed; the focus on the wealth creation should also highlight the resultant gross inequity.

Q. According to the passage, what do the apologists of the "Free Market System" believe in?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 18 Apologists of free market believe in the efficiency and self-correcting ability of such markets as mentioned in 'The debates tend to focus on free market operations and forces, their efficiency and their ability for self correction'. However, this is a biased view as they fail to consider truth, honesty and justice as integral components of an economic system.

Option (1) is not inferable as nothing with respect to role of government is mentioned in the passage.

Option (2) and option (4) are out of context options.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 19

Directions: Read the following passage carefully and then answer the question based on what is stated or implied in the passage.

Many nations now place their faith in capitalism and governments choose it as the strategy to create wealth for their people.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 19 An “apologist” is a person who defends a belief through justifications and arguments.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 20

Directions: Given below is a sentence consisting of a blank. Identify the most suitable alternative among the given options that fits into the blank to make the sentence logical and meaningful.

Her interest in politics was ____ by the exploitation of female workers by their male masters.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 20 'Interest' is created or ended by something. No option indicates towards ending of 'interest'. 'Triggered' means initiated or started. This fits the best with 'interest'.
CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 21

A team of 4 is to be formed out of 5 girls and 6 boys. Find the probability that the team has exactly 3 girls.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 21 Here, 5 girls and 6 boys can be selected to form a team in 5C3 × 6C1 ways.

Total number of ways in which 4 persons can be selected out of 11 persons = 11C4 = 330

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 23

A positive number when increased by 10 equals 200 times its reciprocal. What is that number?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 23 Let the required positive number be x.

By the given condition, we have

x + 10 = 200/x

So, x2 + 10x = 200

x2 + 10x - 200 = 0

x2 + 20x - 10x - 200 = 0

x(x + 20) - 10(x + 20) = 0

(x - 10)(x + 20) = 0

So, x = 10 or x = -20

But x is given as positive.

So, x = 10

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 24

Given below are two statements.

Statement 1: There are five students of class 6 and three students of class 8 in a group. They have to make a group of three persons to make the model. Every group has at least one student of class 8 in the group. The total number of ways of make group is 16.

Statement 2: The number of words which can be formed out of the letters of the word PATHETIC, is 56.

Which of the following is correct?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 24

Statement 1

Let us assume 'A' be the student of class 6 and 'B' be the students of class 8.

According to question,

The possibility is:

2A 1B + 1A 2B + 3B = 5C2 × 3C1 + 5C1 × 3C2 + 3C3

= 10 × 3 + 5 × 3 + 1

= 30 + 15 + 1

= 46

So, statement 1 is false.

Statement 2:

The number of words that can be formed out of the letters of the word 'PATHETIC' is equal to the number of permutation of the letters of the word.

The word contains 8 letters and among them there are 2 Ts, i.e. repetition occur in letters.

So, total number of words that can be formed is =

So, statement 2 is incorrect.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 25

A, B and C invest in an online business with ratio 4 : 3 : 6. A and B start the business and C joins them after 2 months. They decided that C will get a monthly salary of Rs. 6500 from the annual profits. C's total salary came out to be 10% of the annual profit after a year. What is the share of B in the total profits?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 25 C's monthly salary = Rs. 6500.

Then, his annual income = Rs. 6500 x 10 = Rs. 65,000 (As he worked for 10 months only)

Rs. 65,000 is 10% the annual profit.

The annual profit is Rs. 6,50,000.

Ratio of their shares

= 4 x 12 : 3 x 12 : 6 x 10

= 48 : 36 : 60

= 4 : 3 : 5

Total profit left after deducting income of C = Rs. 6,50,000 - Rs. 65,000 = Rs. 5,85,000

B's share = (3/12) x Rs. 5,85,000 = Rs. 1,46,250

Then, a + ar = 1 .......(a)

⇒ arn - 1 = 2 (arn + arn + 1 + ........) (Given)

⇒ arn - 1 = 2 (arn/1-r)

⇒ rn - 1 - rn = 2rn

⇒ rn - 1 = 3rn

⇒ 3r = 1

⇒ r = ⅓

From (a),

a + (⅓)a = 1

⇒ a = 3/4

A motorboat can travel at 10 km/hr in still water. It travelled 91 km downstream and then returned, taking 20 hours altogether. What is the speed of flow of water in the river?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 32 Let the speed of flow of water in the river be x km/hr.

910 + 91x + 910 - 91x = 20(102 - x2)

⇒ 100 - x2 = 91

⇒ x2 = 9

⇒ x = 3

Thus, speed of flow of water in the river = 3 km/hr

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 35

In a group of 160 people, men and women are in the ratio of 3 : 1. After adding some women in the group, the ratio becomes 2 : 1. The mean of weights of the group is 64 kg and the average of women's weights is 3 kg more than men's.

A. The mean weight of men in the group is 63 kg.

B. The mean weight of men in the group is 65 kg.

C. The mean weight of women in the group is 66 kg.

D. The mean weight of women in the group is 68 kg.

E. The mean weight of women in the group is 65 kg.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 35 Let the final mean of the weights of all the men of the group be x kg.

Total number of people = 160

Ratio of the number of men and women, initially = 3 : 1

Hence, initial number of men = (¾) × 160 = 120

Initial number of women = (¼)× 160 = 40

After adding women, new ratio = 2 : 1

So, number of women added = 20

Now, total number of people in the group = 160 + 20 = 180

New average weight of all the 180 people = 64

So, we get:

120x + [60 × (x + 3)] = 180 × 64

180x + 180 = 11,520

180x = 11,340

x = 63 kg

Hence, mean weight of all the men in the group = 63 kg

Mean weight of all the women = 63 + 3 = 66 kg

Directions: Study the following graph to answer the given question.

If the expenditures of companies A and B in 2001 were equal and the total income of the two companies was Rs. 116 lakh, what was the total expenditure of the companies in that year?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 39 Let the expenditure of both the companies in 2001 be Rs. x.

Now, profit % of company A in 2001 = 40%

∴ 40% of x = Income - x

⇒ Income = Rs. 7x/5

Profit % of company B in 2001 = 50%

∴ 50% of x = Income - x

⇒ Income = Rs. 3x/2

Also, income of both companies in 2001 = Rs. 116

⇒ x = 40

∴ Expenditure of both the companies together

= x + x = 40 + 40 = 80 lakh

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 67

Water pipes burst in severe winter at hill stations because

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 67 When water freezes, it expands, as opposed to (practically) all other liquids. (For this reason, ice fortunately forms on the top of ponds and lakes.) The expansion causes pressure to build up that could eventually burst the pipe. However, most water pipes burst because, as the ice builds up in the direction of the pipe, the water pressure continues to build up downstream from the growing volume of ice that is between the ice and the faucets. (Water pressure does not appreciably increase upstream as there is much more water on this side.) This enormous buildup of pressure can eventually cause the strongest of pipes to burst. It is a good idea to leave a faucet dripping if the pipe leading to it is in danger of freezing. Not only does this significantly reduce the chance of the water freezing in the pipe but also it keeps the water pressure from building up to dangerous levels that can cause bursting.

CMAT Mock Test - 4 (New Pattern) - Question 84

Directions: Read the following passage and answer the question.

Talking to people is a necessity when it comes to business. Most people are fine conversing normally, but when it comes to presenting to a group of investors, all sorts of knots may be tied up. Whether it be presenting a sales pitch to a group of decision makers or presenting your ideas to your team in a meeting, there are some ways to help you get over the presentation anxiety. Nothing can feel more daunting than having a bunch of eyes and ears watching and listening to your every stutter, fumble, and mistake. Part of the pressure and anxiety comes from you fearing what could happen if you failed. Preparation not only helps to make sure you give your presentation the best quality you can, but it also provides you with confidence knowing that your preparations will lead to a better presentation.

For preparations, one must know the topic. One won't need to scramble for notes or spend time thinking about the information in your presentation if you have a good grasp of what it entails. To further prepare for this, brainstorm all sorts of questions that might be asked and come up with answers to them. If you plan to have any digital aids in your presentation, know where they are and where you can use them. This is because technology is not always flawless. Perhaps create a physical slideshow or have multiple backups especially if your presentation is heavily reliant on visual information.

Lastly, practise. Practise in conditions similar to an actual presentation and do it until you feel comfortable. The truth is, many pay more attention to the information being relayed rather than the presenter. Yes, a good presenter will give a memorable presentation, but keep in mind that you are critiquing your presentation more harshly than anyone else. Slight stumbles might be noticed by only you alone while the audience is the most unaware. There are always going to be people in the audience that will be bored or tired. Instead of focusing on pleasing everyone, focus on giving a great presentation. No matter how important the presentation is, put your efforts and skills before the reaction of the audience. The less you think about how the audience is reacting, the less anxious you will be.

Remember, silence is not a jab at you personally. Maybe your point is not as well loved as you thought it would be or your joke was not as well received as you thought it would be. That does not mean your point was terrible or that your joke was unfunny. Not all audiences react in the same manner. Your presentation should flow at a breathable pace. A pause here and there gives the audience enough time to process what you said. In storytelling, pauses work the same way to capture the audience's attention. They create suspense and anticipation, drawing in people's attention, and they provide a brief resting period before moving on to the next talking point. Remember, your performance does not indicate your value as a person. We all have bad days and many people can overlook shortcomings. As said previously, silence is not all that bad. Your presentation does not have to be perfect. In fact, a bad presentation is just another way for you to learn how to improve your next presentation. Sometimes we get stuck on the image of who we used to be. Oftentimes, when we criticise our abilities, it is based off of an older version of us.
