Directions(Q.6 to Q.10 ):

In the following passage, there are blanks, each of which has been numbered. These numbers are printed below the passage and against each, four words are suggested, one of which fits the blank appropriately. Find out the appropriate word in each case.

The two words ’growth’ and ’development’ were often used (6) in economic discussion.

As soon as ’development economics’ emerged as a distinct field of study after the World War II, it ’had the appearance of being a child of growth economics’ and, in fact, this child did not differ from what could be expected from a genuine ’son of growth economics’. But, technically speaking, they are not the same.

To a layman, these two terms appear to be (7). However, in the 1950s and 1960s, economists drew a line of demarcation between economic growth and economic development. True enough, the concept of economic development is broader than economic growth. Develop-ment is taken to mean ’growth plus change’, whereas economic growth means growth only quantitative expansion of an economy. Economic growth is, thus, a quantitative concept, while economic development is a (8) concept. C. P. Kindleberger says that growth involves focusing on height or weight while development focuses on the change in functional capacity.

Economic growth is defined in positive terms. It is measured by the sustained increase in real, national or per capita income of a nation over time. Economic growth is usually measured in terms of an increase in real GNP or GDP over time or an increase in income per head over time. Growth is (9) as it enables a society to consume more goods and services.

That is why growth is considered to be the basis of advancing real living standards or human welfare. At the same time, it is also true that growth does not necessarily lead to an increase in human welfare. Economic development is more (10) than economic growth.

Directions(Q.11 to Q.18 ):

Read the following passage and answer the following questions. Some words are highlighted to help you answer some of the questions.

In terms of setting goals in your organization, if you know where you want your organization to go, you’ll be in a strong position to know whether or not you’ve arrived at that goal. Goal setting is an important tool not only for clarifying direction but also for assessing organizational progress. Set clear goals, as those enable you to be more effective toward guiding your performance and _____________ your results.

Useful goals should be challenging and achievable. Setting a sales target that you’ll almost certainly reach may make you and your coworkers feel good about yourselves, but it won’t spur you to work harder and achieve your potential. Setting a sales target that is nearly impossible to reach won’t make your staff work harder, because they’ll know the outcome will inevitably fall short. To be truly useful, goals should also be clear and – whenever possible – quantifiable.

It is more effective to say that you want your company to expand into two new markets during the next two years than to say that you want it to grow considerably. The former provides clear criteria that drive you to achieve, and indicators that tell you when you’ve succeeded. The latter is so vague that you won’t really know what you’re working toward or if you’ve achieved it.

To make your goal-setting meaningful and important, the members of your staff must have a clear idea of what they’re working toward, and they must have the tools and resources to achieve the goals you’ve created. Communicate your goals clearly in meetings and in memos. Be available to answer questions, give feedback and offer support. Celebrate successes and reflect when your efforts fall short.

Coordinate efforts among team members to work in a shared direction with the objective of achieving the goals you’ve set. Create a series of goals to be achieved over time, such as opening one store a year for five years. Align short-term goals, such as improving quarterly cash flow with longer term goals, such as opening new stores.

In some ways, the process of setting and working toward goals is even more important than whether or not you actually achieve them. Circumstances unfold over time, such as changes in market conditions or unforeseen opportunities that make previously set goals obsolete. Failure to reach a goal doesn’t necessarily mean that your work has been unsuccessful. If your goals turn out to be unrealistic, take a step back and set new goals that will guide your plans and processes in a more relevant direction.

Goal setting should be failure proof as the steps taken cannot be reverted
