Q21: An overwhelming proportion of the most productive employees at SaleCo’s regional offices work not eight hours a day, five days a week, as do other SaleCo employees, but rather ten hours a day, four days a week, with Friday off. Noting this phenomenon, SaleCo’s president plans to increase overall productivity by keeping the offices closed on Fridays and having all employees work the same schedule—ten hours a day, four days a week. Which of the following, if true, provides the most reason to doubt that the president’s plan, if implemented, will achieve its stated purpose? A. Typically, a SaleCo employee’s least productive hours in the workplace are the early afternoon hours. B. None of the employees who work four days a week had volunteered to work that schedule, but all were assigned to it by their supervisors. C. Working ten hours a day has allowed the most productive employees to work two hours alone each day in their respective offices relatively undisturbed by fellow employees. D. Employees at SaleCo are compensated not on the basis of how many hours a week they work but on the basis of how productive they are during the hours they are at work. E. Those SaleCo employees who have a four-day workweek do not take any of their office work to do at home on Fridays.

Q22: Charles Lindbergh, for his attempt at a solo transatlantic flight, was very reluctant to have any extra weight on his plane, he therefore refused to carry even a pound of mail, despite being offered $1,000 to do so. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Q23 to Q26: Diamonds are almost impos- sible to detect directly because they are so rare: very rich kimberlite Line pipes, the routes through which (5) diamonds rise, may contain only three carats of diamonds per ton of kimberlite. Kimberlite begins as magma in Earth’s mantle (the layer between the crust and the core). As (10) the magma smashes through layers of rock, it rips out debris, creating a mix of liquid and solid material. Some of the solid material it brings up may come from a so-called (15) diamond-stability field, where condi- tions of pressure and temperature are conducive to the formation of diamonds. If diamonds are to sur- vive, though, they must shoot toward (20) Earth’s surface quickly. Otherwise, they revert to graphite or burn.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
