Cross examination is questioning by the opposing counsel.
It's typically going to be very much more confrontational.
It's going to be a lot more of yes, no questions or short questions that are meant Thio box you into a corner. Which is why it's really important
on cross examination that you listen to the question being asked
and that you make sure that you understand the question being asked
that you also it's really important. Vital that you Onley answer the question being asked
if the question being asked is,
Do you think so and so
Do you think or did you find evidence
that so and so

Your answer should be yes or no,
not yes, and Or, uh,
you shouldn't be giving mawr information. If the question is a yes, no question. Answer the yes, no question.

and allow the court
to give you the opportunity to test to answer the question.

You don't want to start answering it based on what you think. The question is asking. You wanna answer just the question being asked,
which is important and it's important to clarify the questions if needed. If you're unsure of a question,
