3 steps to tackling a question

3 steps to tackling a question


Example numero uno

Example numerouno

Going through the steps:

Analyze – “potential ethical issue”, “distribution channel”

Strike – we can strike out B and D since they do not include ethical conflicts. C may be an answer choice except (and as you learn more of business vocab this will be easier) there isn’t a conflict among distribution channels. Only likely choice is A and that’s probably the one that stood out to you first

Reflect – yes this makes sense, ethical conflict apparent


Example numero dos

EXAMPLE NUMERO DOS

  • Analyze - “businesses affected”, “social factors”

  • Strike – A and D don’t make sense in context. C takes into account social factors but B sounds the most reasonable. A business is dependent upon supply and demand and demand can be altered by social factors making B the BEST answer choice.

  • Reflect – yes makes sense, without demand for product a business can collapse or increased demand positively affects business


Example numero tres y cuatro

Example numerotres Y CUATRO


Additional tips and tidbits

Additional tips and tidbits

  • Make sure to answer all your questions, ¼ chance of getting it right
