    Select the correct statements- 1. Cognitive evaluation theory proposes that introduction of extrinsic rewards for work that was previously intrinsically rewarding tends to increase overall motivation. 2. This theory assumes that intrinsic motivations are independent of extrinsic motivation.

    • A.

      1 only

    • B.

      2 only

    • C.

      Both

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    D. None
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "none". The cognitive evaluation theory proposes that the introduction of extrinsic rewards for work that was previously intrinsically rewarding tends to decrease overall motivation rather than increase it. This theory suggests that extrinsic rewards can undermine intrinsic motivation by making individuals focus more on the rewards rather than the enjoyment or satisfaction derived from the task itself. Therefore, it contradicts the first statement. The second statement is also incorrect as the theory suggests that intrinsic and extrinsic motivations are not independent but can interact and influence each other.

    • E.

      1,2,3 and 4

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 and 2
    Explanation
    Open systems are in constant interaction with the environment, which means they exchange matter, energy, and information with the external environment. This interaction allows open systems to adapt to changing environmental conditions. On the other hand, closed systems are non-adaptable to their changing environmental conditions because they do not interact with the environment. Therefore, both statements 1 and 2 are correct.

    Select the correct statements- 1. According to Mooney, the scalar chain constitutes the universal process of co-ordination. 2. The formal hierarchy eliminates duplication of work.

    • A.

      Only 1

    • B.

      Only 2

    • C.

      Both 1 and 2

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Both 1 and 2
    Explanation
    According to Mooney, the scalar chain constitutes the universal process of co-ordination, which means that it is a fundamental aspect of coordinating activities within an organization. The formal hierarchy eliminates duplication of work, which implies that having a clear chain of command helps to avoid unnecessary repetition or overlap in tasks. Therefore, both statements 1 and 2 are correct as they align with Mooney's ideas on coordination and the benefits of a formal hierarchy.

    • E.

      1 and 3

    Correct Answer
    A. All of them
    Explanation
    Follet believed that an organization is a social system, but not necessarily a cooperative social system. She viewed cooperation as a process within an organization, rather than a pre-condition for it. Her idea of cooperation contradicted the traditional view of organizations as cooperative social systems. Therefore, all three statements accurately represent Follet's views on organizations and cooperation.
