I found a good explanation here http://www.englishclub.com/grammar/adje ... -every.htm

I would agree with you that both customer and cashier can leave. I think that the example created by MGMAT was overambitious....

Try and analyze the mistakes that you made during practice.

Furthermore, concentrate on D-day preparedness..

I am not well verse with health-care or pharma industries. But seeing your choice it seems that you are progressive student.

Take some time to read Richard Montauk's book on MBA. He has explained a lot regarding which type of MBA you should be doing.
