— Say nothing.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
What is the main point of having discussion in classes or group meetings? No one can deny that there are both positive and negative aspects of group sessions such as classes or meetings on the performance of individuals. But, what should attendances do if the meeting director or the teachers say something that is not accurate or in some cases incorrect? If I got stuck in such situation, I definitely prefer to wait until the end of the session and talk to the professor or the director in person and discuss about the flaws in the discussion. This is my preferance for a number of reasons, and I will develop these ideas in the subsequent paragraphs.
To begin with, there should be no place for mistakes especially when it comes to important subject like meeting purposes or academic lectures. Besides, correcting the flaws is an important part of progression, means that to become better at something and that is why the best choice is to correct the mistakes that the lecturer or leader made. I have to admit that my opinion on this matter has been profoundly influenced by my own personal experience. I remember my engagement in a team meeting and the coordinator of the meeting did not understood the data analysis process correctly, though, his conclusion was wrong and he planned for some changes in the roadmap that could lead the team to the wrong way. This misunderstanding meant so much waste in time and money. As a result, I decided to make a correction on his statement after the meeting to avoid such kind of waste. For this reason, it is necessary to take care of the mistakes regardless of who made it.
Furthermore, it does matter how to confront people's errors because, having an argument in front of others may cause misunderstanding and the audience may take it offensive. Therefore, I prefer to talk to the lecturer or the leader in person and after others are gone. Drawing from my own experience as an elementary school teacher, it could be such a mess in the class' discipline when one the students starts to interrupting teacher's speaking. Other students may laugh and the also may start talking and it could be hard for the lecturer to focus on what he was saying. It is certainly clear to see why it is better to talk to the teacher or lecturer personally after the class or the meeting.
In light of the reasons mentioned, although there might be some exceptions which are excluded from general rule, I strongly believe that not only it is necessary to correct errors, but also it is important to mention them in person to the one that made it.

What are above readability scores?
Better to have 5 paragraphs with 3 arguments. And try always support/against one side but compare two sides, like this:
para 1: introduction
para 2: reason 1. address both of the views presented for reason 1
para 3: reason 2. address both of the views presented for reason 2
para 4: reason 3. address both of the views presented for reason 3
para 5: conclusion.
So how to find out those reasons. There is a formula:
reasons == advantages or
reasons == disadvantages
for example, we can always apply 'save time', 'save/make money', 'find a job', 'make friends', 'get more information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.
or we can apply 'waste time', 'waste money', 'no job', 'make bad friends', 'get bad information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.
