Her boss Ram Saxena tells her this can be done only if she personally cross-checks with the respondents. This would require the names and addresses of the respondents to be recorded on the response sheets. But the client has said that as the product is for personal use, the respondents should be informed that their names would not be recorded.

Should Usha agree to this? Q.5. Gita garment Exports had a flourishing business exporting garments to the USA.

The profits would be lower but the company would avert financial disaster. Should they export to Africa without confirming that there would be no risk of dermatitis? Q.6. New Wave Publishers claimed that they were a most ethical company which propagated free speech and expression of views. They were excited by a script titled Kimayana received from Mast Singh It was a full-blown account of an old palm leaf rendition of the story of the Ramayana in which Ram and Sita were brother and sister, and their relationship incestuous. The publishers felt that this had tremendous potential in the West which was looking for new variants of scholarly pornography. Mast Singh was a widely read writer whose writings thrived on the thrill of new twists to old stories. Should New Wave release the book in India and abroad?
