Why did Robert fail to follow Sally’s instructions?
Choice A Sally did not get Robert’s attention before starting to speak, is an excellent choice. Always check to see whether the person is paying attention

Choice C: Sally gave too many instructions at once, is a very good answer. When giving instructions, use simple sentences with no more than one or two directions at a time.
Choice D Sally left without seeing if Robert understood the instructions or needed assistance, is another excellent answer. Making sure that the person understood what was said and is able to follow the instructions are essential parts of good communication Choice E All the above, is the best answer.
