Reading Comprehension: Application Questions

The author would most likely agree with which of the following statements about organizational theory's approach to workers' aims?



The author criticizes organizational theory for its false assumptions about workers' aims. Therefore, the author would not agree that organizational theory is "promising". 



Although the author criticizes organizational theory, he or she does not suggest any ways to improve it.

Very good!


The author criticizes organizational theory because it is based on a faulty logical assumption and not on real information about workers' aims.



The author claims that organizational theory is NOT based on observations. She or he then provides real life observations to counter organizational theory's approach.



While the author is critical of organizational theory and offers alternative aims workers might pursue, he or she also states that some workers might pursue higher personal incomes, just as organizational theory predicts. In other words, the theory does 'cover' that group of workers.

It is a promising theory, but falls short of providing concrete answers regarding workers' aims.
It is faulty in its present form but might be improved upon further research.
It is based on abstract theory and pays little attention to workers' actual purposes.
It is based on observations only and fails to draw general conclusions about workers' aims.
It fails to predict the aims of any group of workers.
