Each day, computers help millions of people do the job more efficiently. For example, they can help managers decide on a future course of action, and they can then help with the follow-up checks on performance to see if planned goals are being achieved. By using accurate and timely facts supplied by database management software, a manager can do a better job of identifying problems and opportunities. The facts retrieved (检索；使恢复 ) by such software can then be manipulated by a spreadsheet package to help the manager plan to alternate courses of action. And managers may not need to spend as much time in controlling when a computer can respond with a triggered report if actual performance varies from what was planned. The time saved in controlling may allow managers to give more attention to employees' concerns, and this, in turn, may result in improved morale (士气).
But employment benefits certainly aren't restricted to managers. Health care researchers and other scientists also use computers to conduct research into complex problem areas that couldn't otherwise be studied. Lawyers use on-line legal data banks to locate precedent (先前的)cases in order to serve clients better. Salespeople can receive more timely information about products in stock, can promise customers that their sales orders will be handled promptly, and can thus improve their sales performance because of the computer system. And the job duties of some office and factory workers have changed from routine, repetitive operations to more varied and appealing tasks through computer usage. For example, office workers who understand text processing, computing, and data communication usually have vital roles and are given critical office functions to perform.
Which of the following examples shows the controlling function of a computer?
A Helping managers decide on a future course of action.
B Helping managers check if planned goals are reached.
C Helping managers save time in writing a report.

The price system in the United States is very complex. It is composed of the prices of all the products bought and sold in the economy as well as those of a lot of services, including labor and transportation. The interrelationships (相互关系) of all these prices make up the "system" of prices. The price of any particular product or service is linked to a broad, complicated system of prices in which everything seems to depend more or less upon everything else.
If one asks a group of people what price is, many would reply that price is an amount of money paid by the buyer to the seller of a product or service. For a complete understanding of a price in any particular transaction, much more than the amount of money involved must be known. Both the buyer and the seller should be familiar with not only the money amount, but with the quantity and quality of the product or service to be exchanged. Besides, they should also know the time and place at which the exchange will take place and payment will be made, the form of money to be used, the credit term and discounts they apply to the transaction, guarantees on the product or service, and other factors. In other words, both the buyer and seller should be fully aware of all the factors in order that they may evaluate a given price.
