PASSAGE-1
Many present-day boards now recognise the
need for careful succession planning. The Chief
E xe cut ive Officers successio n pla ns are
com-monly part of his annual performance
review, and most boards now devote several
meetings a year to the subject. One crucial
decision that boards face is whether to select one
of their own or an outsider. Unsurprisingly, firms

in trouble are much more likely to look for fresh


blood. When the business is running smoothly,
directors are more than happy to pick an
experienced insider, who will continue along the
prese nt path. Where as pro mi sing senio r
executives will often abandon a struggling
company, successful firms tend to have a large
pool of talented managers to choose from.
Occasionally, even a successful company appoints
an outsider who can introduce some particular
expertise. Many utility companies seek outside
Chief Executive Officers to shepherd them
through the complexities of deregulation. Many
boards do consider outsiders even when the
existing Chief Executive Officer is planning a
normal retirement.
191. The passage conveys that an ailing firm
cannot be revived by the appointment of a
Chief Executive Officer who is an:
(A) outside expert
(B) experienced insider
(C) expert in deregulation
(D) experienced shepherd
192. Successful companies prefer to promote an
inside executive as Chief Executive Officer
for reasons of:
(A) stability of operations

PASSAGE-2
Something strange haunts the cultural
landscape of America. M ovie makers and
television producers have become the most
powerful, though perhaps, not the most careful
historians. It seems fair to say that more people
are getting their history or what they think is
history, from the movies these days than from
the standard history books. The phenomenon is
probably unavoidable yet, if the history as
presented by the movies turns out to be a muddy
blur of fantasy and fact, the consequences cannot
be good. In the 16th century, Francis Bacon said
that history makes men wise. It follows that bad
history, trivialized history, history distorted and
sensationalised, can make them foolish. This is
indeed something disconcerting about the
tendency of todays movies-as-history to construct
multicoloured and sound-tracked edifices of
entertainment on the slender foundations of what
appear to be actual events.
196. Consider the following statements:

(B) Powerful but not sticklers for accuracy


(C) Neither powerful nor careful

198. Bacons statement that history makes


men wise is interpreted by the author as
follows:
(A) History aided by technological support
makes men wise
(B) History as a plain and actual record of
events makes men wise
(C) A sentimentalised account of events is
good history as it gives pleasure(D) Good history cannot dispense with the
help offered by movies
199. Which one of the following statements best
reflects the attitude of the author in the
passage ?
(A) The author is all admiration for the
movie makers and television producers
of America
(B) The author regrets that movie makers
and television producers of America do
not have good stories
(C) The author does not find fault with
trivialized or distorted history
(D) The author does not really approve of
the rather disturbing trend of today to

1. Movie makers can manipulate the


actual events of history.
