M    Yes, I am aware of that, but the person I spoke to on the phone said that he could arrange a table for 5 for lunch. It’s a really important lunch meeting. Is there anything you can do?

As supervisors, we are quite sure that it takes time to see the actual benefits of this additional education. We believe that more people would be interested in taking the courses if they were more convenient. Therefore, we are considering asking Madison University professors to come to the office to conduct classes. What an opportunity! How could you miss this?

Questions 95 through 97 refer to the following excerpt from a meeting and a chart.

Attention, everyone! Here’s the breakdown of last quarter’s automobile market shares. We’re still among the top four companies, but we need to pay attention to RUF’s rapid growth – they just surpassed us. We’re not that far behind with nineteen percent though. However, we need to keep up. Until last year, RUF was one of the smallest companies in this area. We have to develop new business models. Now, RUF offers car parts and some video games free of charge and Mercury gives a 10 percent discount for cash. These business approaches could help us attract new users. So next month, we’re going to try it out with some of our existing vehicles to see if we can grow beyond a 20 percent market share.
