    Thanks Bhai.

    I think next to question you said "no", there was supposed to be "see both sides of the situation" instead. .... Thank you for giving me a helping hand. Iīd like to ask just one more question:
    "see both sides of the question/situation" means:

    A: answer questions from the audience (agree with them)
    B: one way of looking at a situation
    C: talk about the most important matter
    D: already being considered, prepared, planned, developed
    E: understand why others have another opinion

    I was taking into account option "A" as correct... but my friend thinks itīs "E"... may I know your opinion? Have a nice day
