Can you figure it out?

• That’s not the point. • (That’s an interesting/another point.) • As the assistant, what do you think, Ms.Wong? • (Have we heard all the opinions? Does anyone else have a suggestion?) • Those figures are not accurate.
• (I have some other figures here.) • You’re doing that wrong. • (Have you tried doing it this way?) • I don’t agree. • (I have another idea. May I make a suggestion?) Decode
• This proposal deserves further consideration. • (We don’t like it.) • We understand your proposal very well.
