Basically, the secret lies on how confident you are in answering these questions.
You also should be in a position to hand over your supporting documents and clearly explain what each of of them mean. If the supporting documents are lengthy enough to make you spend a whole day with the consular officer, then you will be doing yourself more damage than good. Remember that you will only have 2 or at most 3 minutes to answer the questions and explain to the consular officer the exact reasons why you are eligible for the visa.
Know Your Program
