As a new newspaper reporter, Amanda was nervous about doing her first interview with a state senator. She went to a veteran reporter, Clark Webb, for advice. Clark told her the first rule of an interview is to make the person you're interviewing comfortable. Be polite and cheerful. The second rule is to ask open questions. Open questions allow the person you're interviewing to give you more information. "How did you decide to run for office?" is an example of an open question. Third, always try to do more listening than talking. Finally, be sure to thank the person you interview for his or her time. 1. Which one of the following is another example of an open question? a. Is it raining outside? b. Did you know about the crime? c. Will you come to the party? d. What can you tell me about your family?

D. What can you tell me about your family?This is the open question because there is not one correct answer. Each person answering the question will have a unique answer. On the other hand, A is a closed question because the answer is either yes or no. The same applies to the other options.
