AWA 某学校用了interactive computer instruction后辍学率低了,学生的表现也好了,所以建议以后的预算要对所有课程adopt interactive computer instruction
  The following appeared as part of a newspaper editorial.
  “Two years ago Nova High School began to use interactive computer instruction in three academic subjects. The school dropout rate declined immediately, and last year’s graduates have reported some impressive achievements in college. In future budgets the school board should use a greater portion of the available funds to buy more computers, and all schools in the district should adopt interactive computer instruction throughout the curriculum.”
  Discuss how well reasoned... etc.
  AWA:第二个是一个根据一个这个镇东边部分的数据说明了支援者救助车祸反应时间慢于商业的救护车?然后政府就决定用商业的救护车来增加政府收益(注意,题目最上方说这个政府是西部的)
  The following appeared in the editorial section of a West Cambria newspaper.
  “A recent review of the West Cambria volunteer ambulance service revealed a longer average response time to accidents than was reported by a commercial ambulance squad located in East Cambria. In order to provide better patient care for accident victims and to raise revenue for our town by collecting service fees for ambulance use, we should disband our volunteer service and hire a commercial ambulance service.”
  Discuss how well reasoned... etc.
  “The Easy Credit Company would gain an advantage over competing credit card services if we were to donate a portion of the proceeds from the use of our cards to a well-known environmental organization in exchange for the use of its symbol or logo on our card. Since a recent poll shows that a large percentage of the public is concerned about environmental issues, this policy would attract new customers, increase use among existing customers, and enable us to charge interest rates that are higher than the lowest ones available.”
  The following appeared as part of a plan proposed by an executive of the Easy Credit Company to the president.
  “The Easy Credit Company would gain an advantage over competing credit card services if we were to donate a portion of the proceeds from the use of our cards to a well-known environmental organization in exchange for the use of its symbol or logo on our card. Since a recent poll shows that a large percentage of the public is concerned about environmental issues, this policy would attract new customers, increase use among existing customers, and enable us to charge interest rates that are higher than the lowest ones available.”
  Discuss how well reasoned... etc.
  Argument: It is unwise to quit a stable office job in order to be self-employed and work at home. 给出的理由是,在家办公容易受neighbor影响,没效率,经常avoid working等等。然后又说在家办公isolated with the work place, 对career advancement不好。所以不应该quit stable office job and become self-employed.
  AWA 有个地区有三家店连续两年营业额上升,因此他们决定再开三家店。并且要求他们遵循一个program:任何一个顾客在去了两家店以后,可以获得去第三家店的折扣,这样可以保证三家店都获利什么的………
  The following appeared as part of the business plan of the Capital Idea investment firm.
  “Across town in the Park Hill district, the Thespian Theater, Pizzazz Pizza, and the Niblick Golf Club have all had business increases within the past two years. Capital Idea should therefore invest in the Roxy Playhouse, the Slice-o’-Pizza, and the Divot Golf Club, three new businesses in the Irongate district. As a condition, we should require them to participate in a special program: Any customer who patronizes two of the businesses will receive a substantial discount at the third. By motivating customers to patronize all three, we will thus contribute to the profitability of each and maximize our return.”
  AA:一个software company 公司准备cut budget 因为连续三年的利润不好,他们决定向auto industry学习,auto industry用part-time的labor代替full-time employees节约了不少的成本,他们的利润相当的丰厚,所以software company也会采取auto industry的方法来获取利润。。。
  AA: 老题,就是说那个empolyees of not for profit orgnizations are more motivated than other employees, so our corporation should donate money to humanitarian causes to maximize the overall profits
  The following appeared in a memorandum from the head of a human resources department at a major automobile manufacturing company to the company's managers:
  “Studies have found that employees of not-for-profit organizations and charities are often more highly motivated than employees of for-profit corporations to perform well at work when their performance is not being monitored or evaluated. Interviews with employees of not-for-profit organizations suggest that the reason for their greater motivation is the belief that their work helps to improve society. Because they believe in the importance of their work, they have personal reasons to perform well, even when no financial reward is present. Thus, if our corporation began donating a significant portion of its profits to humanitarian causes, our employees’ motivation and productivity would increase substantially and our overall profits would increase as well.”
  Discuss how well reasoned . . .etc.
  作文AA是说一个fitness公司的manager通过一个survey发现 现在人们越来越关注healthy life, 通过吃现在很受欢迎
  organic food可以达到很健康的水品,所以要在他的3家fitness gym里面都要加一个organic grocery section。这样可以收到很多顾客的青睐。获得更多profit。
The following appeared as part of an annual report sent to stockholders by Olympic Foods, a processor of frozen foods.
  “Over time, the costs of processing go down because as organizations learn how to do things better, they become more efficient. In color film processing, for example, the cost of a 3-by-5-inch print fell from 50 cents for five-day service in 1970 to 20 cents for one-day service in 1984. The same principle applies to the processing of food. And since Olympic Foods will soon celebrate its twenty-fifth birthday, we can expect that our long experience will enable us to minimize costs and thus maximize profits.”
  Discuss how well reasoned... etc
  AWA 说一个叫avia’ airline ,在一千个乘客里面就收到9个人关于他们 luggage handling procedure的投诉,然后说这个比例还不到百分之一,所以说明绝大多数的乘客是很满意的,所以不用去review这些procedure了,即使这样以后的乘客还是可以保证的而且increase。
  The following appeared in an Avia Airlines departmental memorandum.
  “On average, 9 out of every 1,000 passengers who traveled on Avia Airlines last year filed a complaint about our baggage-handling procedures. This means that although some 1 percent of our passengers were unhappy with those procedures, the overwhelming majority were quite satisfied with them; thus it would appear that a review of the procedures is not important to our goal of maintaining or increasing the number of Avia’s passengers.”
  Discuss how well reasoned... etc.
  AWA 就是说BC这个公司,是搞mining tech的,然后这个行业不好,profits and price都decline,所以转向了 renewable energy tech,这样就能扭转profits和price的decline,可能还有其他因素不过现在脑子坏掉鸟,想不起了……;
  AWA感谢spups 给出原文
  The following appeared as part of a recommendation from the business manager of a department store.
  “Local clothing stores reported that their profits decreased, on average, for the three-month period between August 1 and October 31. Stores that sell products for the home reported that, on average, their profits increased during this same period. Clearly, consumers are choosing to buy products for their homes instead of clothing. To take advantage of this trend, we should reduce the size of our clothing departments and enlarge our home furnishings and household products departments.”
  AA是说那个水果价格七年前是5cents ,现在是30cents,所以水果涨价了,引发通胀了。要避免通胀,需要制定严格的定价规则。
  The following is taken from an editorial in a local newspaper.
  “Over the past decade, the price per pound of citrus fruit has increased substantially. Eleven years ago, Megamart charged 5 cents apiece for lemons, but today it commonly charges over 30 cents apiece. In only one of these last eleven years was the weather unfavorable for growing citrus crops. Evidently, then, citrus growers have been responsible for the excessive increase in the price of citrus fruit, and strict pricing regulations are needed to prevent them from continuing to inflate prices.”
  Discuss how well reasoned . . . etc.
  AA作文一篇是卖汽车的,说如果给豪华车做广告全年销量包括便宜车都会增加,如果给便宜车做广告销量不会有太多增长,结论给高级车做广告吸引了很多顾客前来观赏同时也增加了其他车的销量
  AWA:“A year ago Apex Manufacturing bought its managers computers for their homes and paid for telephone connections so that the managers could access Apex computers and data files from home after normal business hours. Since last year, productivity at Apex has increased by 15 percent. Other companies can learn from the success
  The following appeared as part of an article in a computer magazine.
  “A year ago Apex Manufacturing bought its managers computers for their homes and paid for telephone connections so that they could access Apex computers and data files from home after normal business hours. Since last year, productivity at Apex has increased by 15 percent. Other companies can learn from the success at Apex: given home computers and access to company resources, employees will work additional hours at home and thereby increase company profits.”
  Discuss how well reasoned . . . etc.
  AA一道是说一种叫muscle monthly的杂志经常卖脱销,上面有一种健身机的图片。所以有人建议在本地的健身中心中装上这种机器,来maximize本地居民的fitness levels。
  The following appeared in the letters-to-the-editor section of a local newspaper.
  “Muscle Monthly, a fitness magazine that regularly features pictures of bodybuilders using state-of-the-art exercise machines, frequently sells out, according to the owner of Skyview Newsstand. To help maximize fitness levels in our town’s residents, we should, therefore, equip our new community fitness center with such machines.”
  Discuss how well reasoned... etc.
