    Smile no matter how much I pay attention

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?

    Manager explains to A the flow of their project.

    Manager: Did you catch the flow now?
    A: Yes, thanks for your time.

    A and B is talking about the project.
    B
    Did you really catch what the project about
    A:
    No, no matter how much I pay attention, I couldn’t catch the flow of the project.
    B: Then why did you said ‘Yes’?
    A:
    I was afraid if the manager thinks I’m stupid.

    Re: no matter how much I pay attention

    How about:

    No, no matter how much attention I paid, I couldn’t catch what the project is/was about.

    I was afraid that the manager would think I was stupid.
