That is, they use the intranet to give orders, not to exchange information between themselves and others working in the same organization.

“Oh, you’re so lucky living in Bath, It’s such a wonderful, lovely, historical place,” people say enthusiastically, and all you can think of is the awful parking, the crowds of tourists, the expensive shops, the narrow-minded council, and the terrible traffic....
Luckily, I don’t live in Bath but nearly ten miles away in a village called Limpley Stoke in the Avon valley. It seems to be normal in the countryside these days for professional people who work in the town prefer to live in the villages, this makes the housing so expensive that the villagers and agricultural workers have to live in the cheaper accommodation in town, with the result that the farmers commute out to the farm and everyone else commutes in. Certainly, there is nobody in the village could be called an old style villager. The people nearest to me include a pilot, an accountant, a British Rail manager, a retired teacher... not a farm worker among them. But I don’t think there is anything wrong with that- it’s just that the nature of villages is changing and there is still quite a strong sense of community here. A lot of this sense of community comes from the Post Office, which is a center for all the gossip and information. I find out what is going on while I am there, pretending to control my two-year-old son. My feeling is that if my son took the money collected for the children, it would go directly where it was needed but they don’t see it like that.
Working at home I tend to wander round the village at times when other people are at the office, which has given me a reputation for being incredibly lazy or unbelievably rich but I still don’t get enough time to look after the garden we bought. My wife had a good idea for the first year. “Let’s just leave it and see what comes up” There were some nice plants among the weeds. She had a good idea for the second year as well. “Why don’t we leave it and see if it all comes up again?” We did, and that is why we need to hire a full-time gardener this year.

Read the passage carefully and choose the correct answer.
Almost every language in the world has dialects and American English is no exception. At the present time there is an interesting study which is on American speech habits. This study has shown that different words are frequently used in different parts of the country to denote the same thing. For example, in the east, Americans use the word "soda" to denote a soft drink. In some parts of the west, a soft drink is "tonic". Such differences are usually a source of conversation and sometimes misunderstanding happens.
Speech and life all over the world have often changed. New words are being used when new discoveries are made and new concepts are formed. Usage determines what is correct and what is incorrect. Fifty years ago, it was incorrect to say "It's me." But today it is acceptable simply because most Americans say that instead of "It's I." People change, so language changes. What is wrong today may be right tomorrow.
