Answer: (D) Unclarified assumptions in communication can lead to confusion and misunderstanding.
- For communication to be effective, there should be active speaking and listening.
- The message needs to be clear, understandable, complete, and precise to avoid any errors in understanding while listening.
- If there exists any unclarified assumption or doubt, the listener can misinterpret and get confused.
- This will lead to a delay in work and will cause misunderstanding between people.
