Brainteaser of the Month

If your parliamentary authority is Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (12th Edition), what type of rules can be suspended by only a majority vote?

(difficulty level - 4)

"An ordinary standing rule, as the term is used in this book, is a rule that does not relate to parliamentary procedure as such and refers, for example, to such matters as the use of recording devices at meetings (see 2:23). Standing rules can be suspended by a majority vote." RONR (12th ed.) 25:15. (Compare to convention standing rules, which require a two-thirds vote or the vote of a majority of all the delegates. RONR (12th ed.) 59:59)
