    Marjorie has twelve credit cards and is $26,000 in debt. She works as a dental assistant and makes $18,000 per year. Since Marjorie does not have enough money to keep up with her life style, what solution would have the most immediate effect on her money problems?

    • D.

      D. Buy lottery tickets

    Correct Answer
    A. The most immediately effect on her money problems? A. Spend less
    Explanation
    Marjorie's immediate solution to her money problems would be to spend less. By reducing her expenses, she can start saving money and use it to pay off her debt. This will help her gradually improve her financial situation. Going back to college or working for a different dentist may have long-term benefits but will not provide an immediate solution to her current debt. Buying lottery tickets is a risky and unreliable solution that is unlikely to solve her money problems.

    Explanation
    In this question, Britt is writing to insurance companies to inquire about job openings.

      A. "How much does it pay?"

      B. "When can I start?"

    • C.

    • D.

      D. "Why did the last person leave?"

    Correct Answer
    C. C. "What are the job responsibilities?"

    When the person who answers the phone asks, "What would you like to know?" it is appropriate to respond by asking about the job responsibilities. This shows that you are interested in understanding what tasks and duties you would be expected to perform in the role. Asking about the pay or start date may come across as too presumptuous or eager, while asking about the reason why the last person left may be considered inappropriate or unprofessional at this early stage of the conversation.

This is because drug and alcohol tests are often required by employers as part of their hiring process to ensure a safe and drug-free workplace. By refusing to take the test, the candidate is not complying with the employer's requirements and therefore is not considered for employment.

    • A.

      A. Come to work on time and work until quitting time.

    • B.

      B. Stay an extra two hours every day to get overtime pay.

    • D.

      D. Offer to pay for the supervisor’s lunch.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Come to work on time and work until quitting time.
    Explanation
    "An honest day's work" refers to fulfilling one's work responsibilities diligently and sincerely. Option A, which states coming to work on time and working until quitting time, aligns with this definition. It implies being punctual and dedicated to completing the assigned tasks within the designated working hours. This demonstrates a responsible and committed approach towards work. Options B, C, and D do not reflect the essence of an honest day's work as they involve actions that may not be honest, such as working extra hours for personal gain, selectively working hard, or offering bribes.

    Rate this question:

  • 16.

Attempting to do it without asking for help may lead to mistakes or wasted time. Asking a co-worker to show you how can be helpful, but they may not have the same level of knowledge or understanding as the person who assigned the task. Attempting to avoid completing the task is not a productive or professional approach.

    • C.

      C. Ask questions for clarification.

      D. Answer what you remember.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Ask questions for clarification.
    Explanation
    If you are given a set of instructions that you don't understand, the best course of action would be to ask questions for clarification. This allows you to seek further information and gain a better understanding of the instructions, ensuring that you can follow them accurately and effectively. Making a best guess or answering based on what you remember may lead to mistakes or misunderstandings, while not worrying about it would not address the issue at hand. Therefore, asking questions for clarification is the most appropriate response in this situation.

    You are unhappy with your job and decide to resign. What should you do if you are presented with a counter-offer for more money?

    • A.

      A. Quit on the spot

    • B.

      B. Do not change your mind about your resignation

    • C.

      C. Take the money and withdraw your resignation

    • D.

      D. Counter the counter-offer

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    If you are unhappy with your job and have already made the decision to resign, it is advisable to stick to your initial decision and not change your mind about your resignation.

It is important to consider other factors such as job satisfaction, work-life balance, and career growth opportunities when making a decision about your employment.

Feedback can be verbal or non-verbal and helps in ensuring that the intended message has been understood correctly and any necessary adjustments can be made if needed.

    • B.

      B. All cars break down after four years.

    • C.

    • D.

      D. I’m a really bad judge of cars.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. All cars break down after four years.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B. All cars break down after four years. This generalization is based on the repeated pattern mentioned in the statement, where each car broke down after four years. However, it is important to note that this generalization may not be entirely accurate as it is based on a limited sample size and does not account for factors such as maintenance, quality of the cars, and individual driving habits.

    • D.

      D. Life is too short not to be enjoyed.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. I enjoy music I also like movies.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. I enjoy music I also like movies. This is a run-on sentence because it contains two independent clauses ("I enjoy music" and "I also like movies") without any punctuation or conjunction to separate them. To fix this, the sentence could be written as "I enjoy music, and I also like movies."

    Teams are more effective than individuals at solving problems because teams generally:

    • A.

      A. Make higher quality decisions.

    • B.

      B. Consider only one point of view.

    • C.

      C. Make quick, impulsive decisions.

    • D.

      D. Consider only one possible solution.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Make higher quality decisions.
    Explanation
    Teams are more effective than individuals at solving problems because they have the advantage of diverse perspectives and expertise. When individuals work together in a team, they can pool their knowledge and skills, leading to a higher quality decision-making process. By considering different viewpoints, teams are more likely to identify potential flaws or limitations in their thinking and come up with more comprehensive and well-rounded solutions. This collaborative approach also allows for better evaluation of different options and reduces the risk of impulsive decisions. Therefore, the ability of teams to make higher quality decisions is a key factor in their effectiveness in problem-solving.

    • A.

      A. Your group members will each do their share of the work.

    • D.

      D. The project will be incomplete and late.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. The project will be incomplete and late.
    Explanation
    If no one takes a leadership role in the group project, it is likely that there will be a lack of organization and coordination. Without someone to guide and delegate tasks, the group members may not work together efficiently or prioritize their responsibilities. This can lead to a lack of progress and productivity, resulting in an incomplete project. Additionally, without a leader to keep track of deadlines and ensure timely progress, the project is also likely to be late.

    While giving a presentation, a presenter should use which of the following non-verbal cues?

    • A.

      A. Arms folded across the chest

    • B.

      B. Random swaying from side to side

    • C.

      C. Gestures to emphasize your message

    • D.

      D. Hands placed in pockets

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Gestures to emphasize your message
    Explanation
    During a presentation, using gestures to emphasize the message is important because it helps to engage the audience and make the information more memorable. Gestures can include hand movements, facial expressions, and body language, all of which can help to convey enthusiasm, confidence, and clarity. This non-verbal cue can also help to reinforce key points, create visual interest, and establish a connection with the audience. Arms folded across the chest, random swaying, or hands in pockets can all be seen as negative or disengaged body language, which can detract from the effectiveness of the presentation.
