    SC - 1) Why did Lisa quit her old job?

    • A.

      She didn't like her boss.

    • B.

      The pay was too low.

    • C.

      She got offered a better job.

    • D.

      She never got a raise.

    Correct Answer
    B. The pay was too low.
    Explanation
    Lisa quit her old job because the pay was too low. This suggests that the reason for her resignation was financial dissatisfaction. The other options, such as not liking her boss, getting offered a better job, or never receiving a raise, are not mentioned as reasons for her quitting. Therefore, the most plausible explanation is that Lisa was not satisfied with her salary, leading her to seek employment elsewhere.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    SC - 2) When did she apply for a job?

    • A.

      Three weeks ago.

    • B.

      One week ago.

    • C.

      Four weeks ago.

    • D.

      Two weeks ago.

    Correct Answer
    C. Four weeks ago.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Four weeks ago" because the question asks about when she applied for a job, and the response indicates that she did so four weeks ago.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    SC - 3) What is true about Lisa's new job?

    • A.

      The hours are longer, but the pay is more.

    • B.

      The hours are shorter, but the pay is less.

    • C.

      The hours and the pay are the same, but she likes it more.

    • D.

      The hours are shorter, and the pay is more.

    Correct Answer
    D. The hours are shorter, and the pay is more.
    Explanation
    The correct answer states that Lisa's new job has shorter hours and higher pay. This means that she is working less but earning more money compared to her previous job. This could be seen as a positive change for Lisa as she is able to have more free time while still being financially rewarded.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    SC - 4) What does the man want to do?

    • A.

      Buy dinner for Jean.

    • B.

      Have breakfast with Jean.

    • C.

      Have lunch.

    • D.

      Buy dinner for Jean.

    Correct Answer
    C. Have lunch.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Have lunch." This is evident from the given options where all the other choices mention buying dinner for Jean, having breakfast with Jean, or buying dinner for Jean again. Therefore, the only option left is that the man wants to have lunch.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    SC - 5) Why can't Jean go with Steve?

    • A.

      She has a business meeting to go to.

    • B.

      She is not hungry.

    • C.

      She has no money.

    • D.

      Steve is eating a business lunch.

    Correct Answer
    A. She has a business meeting to go to.
    Explanation
    The reason Jean can't go with Steve is that she has a business meeting to attend. This implies that she has a prior commitment that prevents her from joining Steve. The other options, such as not being hungry or not having money, do not provide a valid reason for Jean's inability to go with Steve. Additionally, the mention of Steve eating a business lunch does not directly relate to Jean's inability to go with him.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    SC - 6) What is true about Steve?

    • A.

      He is annoyed.

    • B.

      He knows some good restaurants nearby.

    • C.

      He will take her tomorrow.

    • D.

      He has a busy day.

    Correct Answer
    B. He knows some good restaurants nearby.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "He knows some good restaurants nearby." This is because the other options do not provide any information about Steve's knowledge of restaurants or his plans for the future. The fact that he knows some good restaurants nearby suggests that he has some level of familiarity with the area and can provide recommendations for dining options.

    ST - 1) Swing shift jobs are during what times of the day?

    • A.

      9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

    • B.

      5:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m.

    • C.

      11:00 p.m. - 7:00 a.m.

    • D.

      4:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

    Correct Answer
    B. 5:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m.
    Explanation
    Swing shift jobs are typically during the evening and late-night hours. The shift that starts at 5:00 p.m. and ends at 1:00 a.m. fits this description, as it covers the time period when most people are finishing their regular workday and transitioning into the evening. This shift allows for coverage during the busiest hours of the evening, such as dinner time and early nightlife, making it an appropriate choice for swing shift jobs.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    ST - 2) When do people on graveyard shifts usually work?

    • A.

      During the day.

    • B.

      During the night.

    • C.

      On the weekends.

    • D.

      Only during holidays.

    Correct Answer
    B. During the night.
    Explanation
    People on graveyard shifts usually work during the night. This is because graveyard shifts typically refer to work shifts that start late at night and end in the early morning hours. These shifts are commonly found in industries such as healthcare, transportation, and hospitality, where round-the-clock operations are necessary. Working during the night allows these industries to provide services and support during non-traditional hours when most people are asleep.

    ST - 3) What is flexi-time?

    • A.

      You work eight to four.

    • B.

      You can choose your own hours.

    • C.

      You work at night.

    • D.

      You work only during the day.

    Correct Answer
    B. You can choose your own hours.
    Explanation
    Flexi-time refers to a work schedule that allows employees to have flexibility in choosing their own working hours. This means that instead of following a fixed schedule, such as working from nine to five, employees have the freedom to decide when they start and end their workday. This flexibility can be beneficial for individuals who prefer to work during certain hours of the day or have personal commitments that require them to adjust their working schedule accordingly.

    Correct Answer
    C. Ten.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Ten. This suggests that the person worked ten hours a day in their old job.

      Life insurance.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Medical insurance.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is medical insurance. This means that his new job provides him with the benefit of having medical insurance coverage. It is not mentioned whether his job offers home insurance, life insurance, or a company car, so these options are not the correct answer.
