    Hey I am not a native speaker and you guys gotta help me out:) THX

    A company is considering changing its policy concerning daily working hours. Currently, this company requires all employees to arrive at work at 8am. The proposed policy would permit each employee to decide when to arrive from as early as 6am to as late as 10am.
    The adoption of this policy would be most likely to decrease employees productivity if the employees job functions required them to...

    a) work without any interruption from other employees
    b) consult at least once a day with external colleagues
    c) submit their work for a supervisor's eventual approval
    d) interact with each other throughout the entire workday
    e) undertake projects that take several days to complete.


    What would you say? I would go with D?? Any other suggestions?

    I'll go with D as well.
    Explanation :
    a) Any employee can come from 6 am to 10 am and can begin his or her job without disturbing others.
    b) Any employee can interact with external colleague through out the workday without any problem, as nothing is mention about the work timings of external colleagues.
    c) Employee can submit their report to supervisor for approval at any time of the workday. It was not mention that it must get approved at any particular instant so the supervisor can approve the report any time during the work day.
    d) Correct it highlights the actual problem that might hinder their productivity.
    e)Even if a project takes lots of days to complete, it can still be completed on time provided all the employee works with their full efficiency, and since it didn't highlight any problem so can be negated easily.
    I hope it helps..!!!
    e)
