15 June 1993

Ms. Martha Weston

Word Processing Supervisor

ABC Company

Post Office Box 1072

28 King's Street London

Dear Ms. Weston.

Performance of the Cpt Equipment

I'm Pleased to tell you about our experience with the CPT Word Processor as you requested recently... ...example ... .. I assume you have looked at several machines and have narrowed down your choices. Here are my observations.

An approach to adopting word processors

Eighteen months ago we adopted CPT equipment on limited scale with the idea in mind that we could gradually get rid of electric typewriters as we became familiar with the word processor. ...... 8 ......The stations are actually in pairs so each pair can share a common printer...... 9......

We use the equipment as dedicated word processors, although we do have the ability to link up with our computer installation.

The step-at-a-time development of our word-processing center has, we think, saved us money and training time. ......10......

Performance

In terms of performance , the CPT equipment is excellent. ... ...11.. ...Moreover our service contract and warranty have covered all maintenance costs.

We have software packages that check spelling and signal when a mistake occure. ...... 12 .....Using both printers , we recently prepared 1200 individually typed form letter mailings a under four hours. We have no complaint about our preparation of executive reports.

Example: I

A So it works very well and has so many different functions.

B Also it has reduced the confusion that exists about buying software packages .

C The train stops at each station for only fifteen minutes.

D We began with two work stations and now have four.

E Our routine letters are prepared from disc-stored masters.

F The Rotary W printer with a speed of 45 characters a second can easily handle two input stations.

G In contrast ,its size and weight are ideal for carrying.

H We have not yet experienced mechanical problems so far.

I We are pleased with its performance and multi-functions.

PART THREE

Questions 13-20

. Read this text about the problem of Barclays Bank.

The New Look

When Sir John Quinton, then chairman of Barclays Bank, was given his marching orders last April, Britain's biggest bank thought it had found the scapegoat for its sudden fall from grace and profits ,Andrew Buxton, the bank's managing director and an offspring of its founding families ,was a pointed chairman and chief executive ,with effect from January 1st of next year. It seemed a glorious victory for good business management. Is the problem solve do Certainly not.

1. No sooner had Mr. Buxton been appointed chairman and chief executive than big

shareholders and quite a few board members began quietly to question his ability to do both jobs at once. Now ,weeks before he is due to move up ,the questions are louder. Many wish the bank had seized the opportunity Lasy April to separate the two top posts. And privately. Some wonder whether Mr. Buxton is the right man for either one. What started as a thoroughly British Whispering Campaign has assumed much bigger dimensions..

2. Mr. Buxton has suffered it all ,but in truth he has no way out. After weeks of talking to shareholders and discussing with his non-executive directors ,he has accepted that Barclays will separate the top jobs sometimes in the future. How7 He says that there has been no formal discussion of it in the boardroom.

3. Formally or informally, it has been agreed that Mr. Buxton will not be moved from his chairmanship, and that Barclays must find a strong chief executive. Opinions differ as to whether this person should be chosen from inside or outside the bank. Several board members believe that there is no ideal candidate inside Barclays.

4. Neither shareholders nor non-executive directors want to wait long. If the right candidate can be found, the bank could combine the announcement of a new appointment with its annual results at the end of March. Mr Buxton stressed the importance of getting this next step right, particularly since any appointment will mean overturning a management reorganization that was announced only eight months ago.

Question 47

(Sample for reference) .

Nowadays, less people like to spend their holidays at home. More people go camping outside or even travel abroad. The changes are caused mainly by three factors. First ,people become more open. Instead of staying at home, they visit foreign countries to know the different races. Secondly ,in the 1990s , house wives are more free from the heavy housework with more and more household utensils. Families are very happy to spend holidays outside with mothers or wives. Thirdly, travelling abroad can also mean enjoying comfortable weather in another country. Therefore less people go to crowded seaside ,they turn to other ways.

Part Three.

Questions 23 to 30.

Retailer: A person's life style has a significant effect on the purcharsing process. So how do I determine and understand the life style of my target market?

Sociologist : The consumer's activities , interests ,and opinions or AIO can be used to analyze life styles and their impact on purchase behavior. Activities, interests, and opinions are especially useful when they can be related to demographic data. Grouping people according to these three criteria will reveal substantial differences in product usage ,time spent shopping, enjoyment of shopping experience, location and hours of the store, and so on. A typical consumer AIO survey would include questions on membership , hobbies, travel, shopping, work, and entertainment activities , involvement in the home , the family, and community interests and feelings about economics, politics, and advertising. The use of the AIO measurement has also been called psychographics ;it is in the early stages of development.

Retailer :So the AIO survey of consumers is not enough. What else should I pay attention to?

Sociologist: Culture, social class, reference groups and class consciousness are social dimensions of life style that have an impact on purchasing behavior. A person's culture affects the importance of family ,religion ,education and other concerts. North Americans act differently than South Americans or Europeans because of their cultural heritage. For example, in the United States, purchasing decisions are more decentralized; religion has a declining impact on behavior. From a retailing perspective, the norms or standards of behavior that are influenced by culture are most important. Culture has an impact on all aspects of the purchasing process.

Retailer : How does social classes influence a person's purchasing behavior?

Sociologist :Lower-class consumers have limited information sources and seek local ,friendly retailers. Middle class consumers utilize media information and extensive search. They are willing to shop out of their neighborhoods. Upper-class consumers use media information and shop at prestige stores. For products or services that are conspicuous ,reference groups have an important role in the purchasing process. Those reference groups that are face-to-face have the most impact on the

purchasing process. The different types and uses of reference groups need to be understood , As an example ,one's neighbours are a membership reference group. However ,a retailer must distinguish between the use of neighbours as a reference group by suburbanites and the use by city dwellers. The suburbanite will follow his or her neighbours and know them much better. City dwellers are more independent and know little about their neighbours.

Retailer :Don't you think motives are very important in purchasing behavior?

Sociologist : Yes. Personality , motives , and performance are individual dimensions of life style that have an impact on purchasing behavior. A consumer's personality traits affect the purchase process. For an impatient person, the process is short. For someone with little selfconfidence, the process is long. Post purchase satisfaction is very important to a statusseeker. Consumers have different motives (reasons) when they buy products. Motives are critical when the consumer ranks alternatives and makes a final decision. Motives do change in different situations. A person's performance in various roles determines his or her social acceptance and influences the purchasing process.

Retailer ,Thank you very much. I think I've learned about the importance of life style.

Dear Ms. Weston.

Performance of the Cpt Equipment

I'm Pleased to tell you about our experience with the CPT Word Processor as you requested recently... ...example ... .. I assume you have looked at several machines and have narrowed down your choices. Here are my observations.

An approach to adopting word processors

Eighteen months ago we adopted CPT equipment on limited scale with the idea in mind that we could gradually get rid of electric typewriters as we became familiar with the word processor. ...... 8 ......The stations are actually in pairs so each pair can share a common printer...... 9......

We use the equipment as dedicated word processors, although we do have the ability to link up with our computer installation.

The step-at-a-time development of our word-processing center has, we think, saved us money and training time. ......10......

Performance

In terms of performance , the CPT equipment is excellent. ... ...11.. ...Moreover our service contract and warranty have covered all maintenance costs.

We have software packages that check spelling and signal when a mistake occure. ...... 12 .....Using both printers , we recently prepared 1200 individually typed form letter mailings a under four hours. We have no complaint about our preparation of executive reports.

Example: I

A So it works very well and has so many different functions.

B Also it has reduced the confusion that exists about buying software packages .

C The train stops at each station for only fifteen minutes.

D We began with two work stations and now have four.

E Our routine letters are prepared from disc-stored masters.

F The Rotary W printer with a speed of 45 characters a second can easily handle two input stations.

G In contrast ,its size and weight are ideal for carrying.

H We have not yet experienced mechanical problems so far.

I We are pleased with its performance and multi-functions.
