An important stage of personal time management is to take control of appointments. Determined by external obligation, appointments constitute interaction with other people and an agreed-on interface between your activities and those of others. Start with a simple appointment diary. List all appointments including regular and recurring ones. Now, be ruthless and eliminate the unnecessary. There may be committees where you can’t productively contribute or where a subordinate may be able to participate. Eliminate the waste of your time.
Effectively managing your appointments allows you to __________.

  1. spend more time with your subordinates
  2. delegate responsibility to subordinates
  3. make more efficient use of your time
  4. attend only the most important meetings

Answer(s): C

Explanation:

Effective appointment management eliminates the waste of your time, as explained in the last sentence of the passage.



The U.S. Congress consists of 100 senators and 435 representatives. Two senators are elected from each state. The number of representatives from each state is based on population, although each state has at least one representative. Senators serve six-year terms and representatives serve two-year terms.
According to this passage, _______________.

  1. there are an equal number of senators and representatives
  2. the number of representatives from each state is decided by a lottery
  3. it’s possible for a state to have no representatives
  4. senators and representatives have different term lengths

Answer(s): D

Explanation:

The passage gives the numbers of senators and representatives, so Choice "there are an equal number of senators and representatives" is incorrect.
The passage states that each state’s population determines the number of representatives a state has, so Choice "the number of representatives from each state is decided by a lottery" is incorrect.
As stated in the passage, each state has at least one representative, so Choice "it’s possible for a state to have no representatives" is incorrect.



Indo-European languages consist of those languages spoken by most of Europe and in those parts of the world that Europeans have colonized since the 16th century (such as the United States). Indo-European languages are also spoken in India, Iran, parts of western Afghanistan, and in some areas of Asia.
The author of this passage would agree that ___________.

  1. Indo-European languages are spoken in areas all over the world
  2. Indo-European languages include all the languages spoken in the world
  3. only Europeans speak Indo-European languages
  4. Indo-European language speakers can easily understand one another

Answer(s): A

Explanation:

Many languages are excluded from the Indo-European language group, so Choice "Indo-European languages include all the languages spoken in the world" is incorrect.
Indians, Iranians, Asians, and Afghans aren’t Europeans, so Choice "only Europeans speak Indo-European languages" is incorrect.
The passage gives no evidence to support Choice "Indo-European language speakers can easily understand one another", which isn’t true.



In privatization, the government relies on the private sector to provide a service. However, the government divests itself of the entire process, including all assets. With privatized functions, the government may specify quality, quantity, and timeliness requirements, but it has no control over the operations of the activity. Also, the government may not be the only customer. Whoever the government chooses to provide the services would likely provide the same services to others.
This paragraph best supports the statement that __________.

  1. the government must closely supervise privatized functions
  2. privatized functions consist of a mixture of government employees, military personnel, and private contractors
  3. privatized functions are those institutions that provide services only to a government agency
  4. privatized functions provide essential services to the government

Answer(s): D

Explanation:

Privatized functions operate independently of the government, making Choices "the government must closely supervise privatized functions" and "privatized functions consist of a mixture of government employees, military personnel, and private contractors" incorrect.
The passage states that privatized functions may sell goods and services to other customers as well as the government, so Choice "privatized functions are those institutions that provide services only to a government agency" is also incorrect.
Choice "privatized functions provide essential services to the government" is the correct answer, as privatized functions do perform essential services to government agencies.
