Which of the following is not a governed but unincorporated US territory?

Correct! Wrong!

Territories are subnational administrative divisions that are under the control of the US government. American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands are the five continuously populated, governed, unincorporated territory.

U.S. territory residents are not fully represented in the U.S. Congress and are not allowed to vote for the President of the United States.

A sovereign island nation is the Marshall Islands. The islands were taken over by the United States in 1944, during World War II.

After the US legally recognized the islands' president and constitution, full sovereignty was attained in 1979.

Recently, the deputy director of your organization misspoke during a presentation at a business conference. Some participants might be influenced by this remark to make mistakes that will cost them money.

What is the BEST course of action to take in this circumstance?

Correct! Wrong!

The deputy director's false assertion could have major repercussions. It "could cause some guests to make mistakes that would be detrimental for their firms," specifically. The organization must notify all attendees of the correction given the gravity of the circumstance (Option B). The next question is followed by a detailed explanation of the solution. Option A, publishing a correction on the agency website, may not be viewed by any of the meeting attendees, or it may only be seen by a small portion of them. Option C, which instructs agency personnel to be ready to respond to inquiries, is likewise unreliable because it is likely to provide information mostly to participants calling in after the fact who have already erred. Option D is incorrect since it does not specify when the deputy director's subsequent presentation will take place and because it is impossible to confirm that the same audience members will attend.
