    Hey "David",

    This is your teacher. When I said you could look on the internet to find your answers, this is not what I had in mind. Posting the entire quiz and word bank for someone else to do for you is grounds for failure.

    I'd like anyone interested in completing this kids' homework to please not.

    These are all Robert's Rules of order and as such you can find anywhere/everywhere online, but I'll help with one to get you started.

    If someone is breaking the rules what motion do you make? If you are in a meeting and other people aren't listening or talking about something else on the side and you can't hear what is actually going on then you stand up and say, "Mr/Ms Chairman/Chairwoman or Presiding Officer, I rise to a question of privilege affecting the assembly....there is a noise being made here in the room and some of us cannot hear," At that point the officer should tell the rule breakers to be quiet or get out.

    So it's "question of privilege"
