    It is correct when I said "the presentation was quite dull... "

    Re: The correct rule to use was

    The question is the word was, is it correct to use after the presentation or just better not to put it?

    The reason you were asked in post #2 if you had a question is that your first post was not correctly constructed as a question. Note my corrections above, marked in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
