Hi Simon,

I have a question in the Cambridge Ielts book. The question is from book 3, test 4, Reading passage 3. Question 28 asks that "The experiment was designed to...". I found its answer in the passage; "To what extent can a manager make an impressive earning record over a short period ozone to three years by exploiting the company's investment in the human organisation in his plant or division?...... for social reach designed to answer these questions."

I chose D: exploit the human organisation of a company in order to increase profits. But according to the book, the real answer is A: establish increased productivity should be sought at any cost.

But I don't understand why the choice A is correct and why my answer is false.

Please explain:) Thank you so much :)
