Thank you for understanding my point brother. It's Ok, it doesn't necessarily means that all will score low. The good point about the examiner is that they always give preference to Originality. So keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best.

soft drinks aren’t just flavored carbonated beverages. “Soft Drink” refers to nearly all beverages that do not contain significant amounts of alcohol (hard drinks).

The term “soft drink” though is now typically used exclusively for flavored carbonated beverages. This is actually due to advertising.
