Focusing on GD topic  (25.93%)
Concluding with consensus  (37.04%)
Being self centric  (3.70%)
Getting maximum share of noise  (7.41%)

After having analyzed further it was found that in GD the most important factor is how to conclude in the end and whopping 37.04% agreed to this fact and they further added that if the conclusion is juxtaposed to the subject of GD then it would be the best conclusion.
