Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions
Telecommuting is some form of computer communication between employees homes and offices. For employees
whose job involve sitting at a terminal or word processor entering data or typing reports, the location of the
computer is of no consequence. If the machine can communicate over telephone lines, when the work is completed,
employees can dial the office computer and transmit the material to their employers. A recent survey in USA Today
estimates that there are approximately 8,7 million telecommuters. But although the numbers are rising annually, the
trend does not appear to be as significant as predicted when Business Week published The Portable Executive as
its cover story a few years ago. Why hasnt telecommuting become more popular?
Clearly, change simply takes time. But in addition, there has been active resistance on the part of many managers.
These executives claim that supervising the telecommuters in a large work force scattered across the country would
be too difficult, or, at least, systems for managing them are not yet developed, thereby complicating the managers
responsibilities.
It is also true that employees who are given the option of telecommuting are reluctant to accept the opportunity.
Most people feel that they need regular interaction with a group, and many are concerned that they will not have the
same consideration for advancement if they are not more visible in the office setting. Some people feel that even
when a space in their homes is set aside as a work area, they never really get away from the office.

A. The advantages of telecommuting B. A definition of telecommuting
C. An overview of telecommuting D. The failure of telecommuting
Question 37: The phrase of no consequence means_____.
A. of no use B. of no good C. unimportant D. irrelevant
Question 38: The author mentions all of the following as concerns of telecommuting, EXCEPT_____.
A. the opportunities for advancement B. the unwillingness of supervisors
C. the lack of interaction with a group D. the work place is in the home

A. telecommuters B. managers C. employees D. most people
