    In the above question on organisation, I chose B because implications mean inference and, because the passage doesn't talk about inferences.





    From passage, Launching lawsuits against unionised is a deterrence. then why B is incorrect ?
    Is it because it talks about profits ?

    B is wrong because there's no evidence that the author of the piece favors the adoption of employment-at-will. According to the passage, employment-at-will has definite drawbacks (employees can be unjustly fired) but dispensing with employment-at-will seems to decrease employment levels by increasing employment costs.

    And "implications," just means "consequences." (And we certainly get some consequences of dispensing with the doctrine of employment-at-will.)

    For Q1, Implications=consequences
    This helps a lot Smile

    1)Doesn't the modified version of employment-at-will, the one with wrongful termination laws, seem to decrease employment levels by increasing cost ? Are you implying the same thing here ?



    2)For the second question on wrongful termination, which seems to be an inference question, Couldn't understand where to look for the answer.

    3) Does "that the impact on employment appears to be smallest" imply hardly any difference between the periods of periods of employment-at-will and those of modified doctrine ?

    Yep. I could have been more precise with my language, but that's exactly correct. When employment-at-will is modified by including wrongful termination laws, one consequence is a potential decrease in employment levels.

    Well, the passage is one paragraph, so we don't have that much material to scan. First, we might look for a key word or phrase, such as "wrongful termination laws." Another tip-off is the phrase, about 60% of the way through the passage, "in a study..." When you see that, it's reasonable to conclude that the relevant info will be contained towards the end of the passage. Then you're going from answer to answer and looking for textual support for each one. (Hint: re-read the last line of the passage as you evaluate each option.)

    Not necessarily. It just means that if you were to rank the impact of the modifications on various categories, you'd see the smallest impact in manufacturing + small firms. It doesn't mean that this impact is so small that it doesn't matter.
