Reading Comprehension: Application Questions

Which of the following sentences would provide the best continuation of the passage?



This answer choice does not fit the Main Idea of the passage, as the passage seeks to show why organizational theory is flawed.



This answer choice is illogical. It would not make sense for the author to provide a fact validating the arguments of organizational theory when he or she argues that organizational theory is flawed.



Although this answer choice is logically connected to the sentence that precedes it, the aim of the passage is to show why organizational theory is flawed, not to promote any alternate theories.

Good work!


This sentence logically connects to the last sentence of the passage and supports the author's arguments that organizational theory is flawed. 

Remember, in this type of question we are looking for a sentence that can be a legitimate part of the passage - we are NOT looking for a conclusion sentence or a sentence which begins a new topic\paragraph\passage.



The author does not seem to think that further study is needed; he or she already has formed an opinion about organizational theory (that it is severely flawed).

Despite all these flaws, organizational theory can still be a useful tool in predicting the interactions between workers and management.

However, workers in community X preferred to maximize their own incomes over working fewer hours every day.

Statistics have shown that over 75% of workers rated their personal income as secondary to the number of jobs available in their area.
Because workers indicate preferences other than maximizing their individual incomes, the Behavioral Economic Theory is a more accurate model of workers' behavior.
Therefore, further study is needed before the merits of organizational theory's approach to workers' preferences can be judged.
