The Correct Answer:

C. Extraneous is an effective example of a speech.


Communication is challenging with diverse cultural groups, people of different ages, and people with access to several technologies. The other factors include literacy limitations, various age groups, limited English proficiency, impacted mobility, congenital processing, speech, and vision.

When having a diverse group in the audience, it becomes hard for the communicator or the speaker to connect with the audience. In such situations, the speakers generally use elementary language native to the area or restart using some non-verbal gestures by maintaining eye contact, asking questions, using positive hand gestures, etc., connecting with the audience.

It is also believed that using appropriate examples is the best way to make people understand and connect with the situation. Using examples not only helps the better understanding but the audience gets involved in the communication and starts asking questions.

The stories can also be used as an example to illustrate the point by giving a very imaginary situation to the people. An effective communicator always tries to provide an example to explain complex concepts to the audience; it automatically means that the speaker understands the audience’s requirements.

Factual, hypothetical, and extended are compelling examples that need to be included in the speech.
