Stock Options

Albuquerque, NM
October 10, 2006
Landreth’s Shoes
7829 Miller Avenue
Denver, CO
Dear Sir:
Wouldn’t you be surprised if you walked into your store tomorrow and saw $5 bills hanging out from every shoe box lid?
Money, as you know, has no value unless it is working. If you invest money in something that doesn’t earn anything, it
eventually costs more money to leave it there. This is why a large group of our customers go to a little extra time and effort to
harness their shoe stock with our Concentration Plan. This plan helps them drive those slow-moving shoes off the shelves.
Our Stock Control System is a part of the Concentration Plan. It will keep track of your stock and keep that stock mobile in a
way you couldn’t manage without it. You’ll be surprised at how inefficient your current stock-tracking systems will seem in
contrast. Install our Plan in January and it will be running smoothly by your spring shoe sales. It costs nothing except your
willingness to start it and keep it going. Please read the attached Concentration Plan agreement, fill in the information on the
second sheet, and we will forward the necessary supplies and information. I am confident that, having read the attached
customer testimonies, you will see that Stock Options Concentration Plan is the only way to go. You may also find further
information on the Stock Options website at www.stockop.co.
Sincerely,
Darlene French,
Stock Options Consultant
169.
What type of letter is this?
(A) An inquiry letter
(B) A request letter

170. What will the Concentration Plan accomplish?
(A) It will increase profits.
(B) It will attract shoppers from far away.
(C) It will put $5 into every box of shoes.
(D) It will provide a website.
171. What should Landreth’s Shoes do first?
(A) Put time and effort into their business
(B) Read the agreement and complete a questionnaire
(C) Install the Concentration Plan in January
(D) Send in $5 for each pair of shoes in stock
172. According to the letter, how long after installation would it probably take for the system to become effective?

I have been using a discount plan offered by your competitors, but I have not been satisfied with the quality of the line. CallConnect looks like a very convenient plan, but I would like to ask a few questions before I decide whether or not it is the right
plan for me.
First, your advertisement mentions that you can save 50% on calls "to members in your Call-Connect group." I am not quite
sure what this means. Does it refer to a group of numbers that I will select to qualify for the extra discount, or does it mean
people who are also already TC customers?
Secondly, the ad says that if I spend more than $50, the discount increases to "30%, with a 50% savings to the members in your
Call-Connect group." Yet as I understand it, the calls to the members in the Call-Connect group already qualify for a 50%
discount. What exactly is the discount being given in this case?
I look forward to your reply.
Sincerely,
R. Winters
196. Which statement is NOT true about TC’s Connect-Call plan?
(A) You save 25% on calls to anyone in the US.
(B) You must spend $5o a month to get cheaper rates.
(C) You always save 5o% on calls made within the US.
(D) There is no monthly fee.
197. If you spend more than $5o, what happens?
(A) You lose your 25% automatic savings.
(B) Your charges automatically increase to 3o%.
(C) You must call customer service to check your account status.

Questions 158 through 161 refer to the following report.
Lithuania, the Czech Republic, and Romania have announced a comprehensive plan for free trade, it is being portrayed as an
opportunity for greater economic growth for all three nations. The newly formed Free Economic Association (FREA) has been
greeted enthusiastically by business groups generally, but Czech labor unions, already struggling for labor rights in their own
country, oppose the removal of trade barriers and tariffs, contending that the accord will send jobs to Romania and Lithuania,
where labor costs are lower and environmental regulations more lax. The three countries have attempted to satisfy some of the
opposition to FREA by concluding side agreements. The free trade plan will bring together over 90 million consumers in a
growing market. If successful, it will extend membership to other former Soviet-bloc nations and eastern European countries
who are interested in joining.

Questions 186 through 190 refer to the following email and article.
To: lsimmons@aadco.com
From: jknowles@aadco.com
Subject: Advertising technology
Date: April 3rd
Hi Leslie,
I've just been reading the newspaper, and I came across a very interesting article. I am attaching a copy for you to take a look at.
It talks about sending advertisements via cell phone. Apparently mobile phone ads are the next big thing, and I think we might
want to jump on the band wagon. We haven’t come up with anything new or exciting in a while, and I’ve been racking my
brain trying to think of something. When I read this article, I thought immediately of the Levitec campaign. They are aiming at
a young, technology-sawy audience: just the kind of consumer who would respond to an ad popping up on their phone display.
Take a look at the article and let me know what you think. Is it something we’d like to start doing here at Adams Advertising?
Regards,
Jules

Look Who's Calling: Ads on the cell phone
By Ellis Lane
The 30-second spot on TV may be about to give way to a 3-second ad flashing across the screen on your cell phone. Soon, the
technology will be available to send an advertisement to a potential customer, alerting them that they are in the vicinity of a
particular store. This may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but using global positioning systems (GPS), it is close to
becoming a reality. With increasingly sophisticated graphics in the average cell phone, phone-based ads are expected to really
take off in the coming 12 months.
It is not without complications. It is illegal for wireless carriers to divulge a subscriber's personal information without that
individual's permission. However, it has been proposed that subscribers who do agree to receive ads be offered special
incentives such as reduced monthly fees.
186. Why did Jules send this email?
(A) To inform Leslie that he is tired of his job
(B) To advertise an industry newspaper
(C) To ask Leslie to come up with a new advertising idea
(D) To ask for feedback on a new advertising idea
187. Why does Jules think cell phone ads might be good for Levitec?
(A) Because their customer base is young
(B) Because it is a cell phone company
(C) Because he is a big fan of mobile communications
(D) Because they will be more cost- effective
188. How will cell phone ads work?
(A) They’ll use GPS to inform customers of nearby retailers.
(B) They will use sophisticated graphics to attract young people.
(C) They’ll use radio waves.
(D) They’ll work very efficiently.
189. What problem might cell phone advertisers encounter?
(A) Difficulty obtaining cell phone users’ personal data

Questions 165 through 168 refer to the following article.
The annual Marylebone Classic Car show opened today for a three-day run at the Brentwood Convention Center. People started
to line up three hours before doors opened at nine o'clock this morning, anxious to take a look at the cars on display. This
year's classic car show includes a number of seminal muscle cars, such as the 1964 Ford Fairlane Sports Coupe. The stylish
Sports Coupe was Ford's attempt to counter the Chevrolet Corvette's success in the rally market. Ford added a number of new
performance features to the Fairlane including the all-new 289 engine and an updated suspension system. Many of these
features were carried forward into the mid-year release of the new Mustang line. While Ford's success against the Corvette was
limited, the Sports Coupe was also released in a limited- edition high performance model known as the Thunderbolt. The
Thunderbolt dominated the drag race circuit that year and led to the explosive growth of the muscle car market. Other cars on
display included the Aston Martin XX32, made popular in the action movie series Spy on the Run, and the more sedate Rolls
Royce G-series. While a large number of the visitors were male, as might be expected, this year's show has seen a large
increase in the percentage of female visitors, inspired perhaps by the popularity of the TV show, Women at the Wheel, in
which famous women test drive new cars.
