      T

    • B.

      F

    Correct Answer
    B. F
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that once you have set your priorities for the day's work, nothing should persuade you to change them. However, this is not always the case as priorities can change due to unforeseen circumstances or urgent tasks that require immediate attention. It is important to be flexible and adaptable in order to effectively manage your workload and respond to changing needs and priorities.

      T

    • B.

      F

    Correct Answer
    B. F
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that starting the day with an easy task will help you relax when you move on to more difficult tasks. However, the correct answer is false. The order in which tasks are completed does not necessarily have an impact on relaxation or stress levels. Different people have different preferences and working styles, so what may work for one person may not work for another. It is more important to prioritize tasks based on deadlines, importance, and personal preferences rather than solely focusing on the difficulty level.

    When faced with conflicting demands from multiple bosses, it is important to seek guidance from a higher authority, in this case, the supervisor. By asking for their help in deciding which task should be given the highest priority, it shows a proactive approach in managing the workload and seeking a fair resolution. This also helps to avoid potential conflicts and ensures that the tasks are prioritized effectively based on the supervisor's expertise and understanding of the overall organizational goals.

      T

    • B.

      F

    Correct Answer
    B. F
    Explanation
    Scheduling appointments as close together as possible may actually lead to time wastage between them. This is because if appointments are scheduled too closely, there may not be enough time for one appointment to finish before the next one starts. This can result in delays and a lack of sufficient time to address each appointment properly. Therefore, it is more efficient to schedule appointments with a reasonable gap in between to ensure that each appointment can be given the necessary attention and time.

    As the person responsible for managing appointments for your boss, it is your duty to gather the necessary information from callers, including their name, telephone number, and address. This ensures that you have all the relevant details to schedule and organize the appointments efficiently. It is not the caller's responsibility to provide this information, but rather yours as the person handling the appointments.

    A tickler file is not used to keep a record of past office activities. Instead, it is a system for organizing and reminding oneself of future tasks and deadlines. It typically consists of a set of folders or files labeled with specific dates, and documents or notes are placed in the corresponding folder to be reviewed or acted upon on the designated date.

    In business, informal meetings happen much more often than formal meetings.

    • A.

      T

    • B.

      F

    Correct Answer
    A. T
    Explanation
    Informal meetings are more common in business because they are often impromptu and do not require as much planning or structure as formal meetings. Informal meetings can occur spontaneously, such as a quick discussion in the hallway or a brief catch-up over coffee. They are less time-consuming and allow for more flexibility in terms of agenda and participants. On the other hand, formal meetings usually require scheduling, preparation, and adherence to a set agenda. While formal meetings are necessary for important decisions or presentations, informal meetings are more frequent and serve as a way for colleagues to exchange ideas, collaborate, and build relationships.

      T

    • B.

      F

    Correct Answer
    B. F
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the agenda for a business meeting typically includes a list of topics to be discussed, not a list of who was present, what action was taken, and the meeting's start and end time.

      T

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. F
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it states that you have to make hotel reservations yourself for any trip you plan for your boss. This implies that a travel agent cannot help with hotel reservations, which is not true. A travel agent can assist with both airline tickets and hotel reservations, making the statement incorrect.
