Previous Question Applied to an Undebatable Motion

Recommended Posts

I recently came across the following test question

 

25. The subsidiary motion for the Previous Question can be applied to an undebatable motion if a member wanted to
 
a. stop an amendment.
b. not allow members to ask questions.
c. delete a question asked by a member that is recorded in the minutes of the previous meeting.
d. make a motion to allow the assembly to debate it.
 
The correct answer was marked C.
 
Is that really correct? I remember reading in RONR that the previous question can be applied to fix time to which to ajourn to prevent the making of the motion and I can't even remember reading anything that pertained to C.

Are you trying to buy a license of some kind from somebody?  :)

The correct answer is obviously A. The Previous Question can be applied to an undebatable motion for the purpose of preventing amendments. The Previous Question is not used to make a correction to the minutes.

 

Do the people who make these tests ever proofread their questions? :)
