Homework Help: Communication

Posted by Daniel on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 8:46pm.

In response to a compliment on his excellent oral presentation, a Japanese business executive replies, "No, it wasn't very good." Which of the following is the MOST likely explanation for this response?

A He thought the person giving the compliment was his inferior.

B He thought the comment was meant sarcastically.
C He was giving the response to a compliment that is considered socially correct in his culture.
D He really was not very well prepared for his presentation and he was embarrassed because his facts might not all be correct.

I believe it is C but I am not sure. I think it is C because from experience the Japanese culture is very upfront about their personal opinions. Need someone to verify this please.
