Read the text below and decide which answer (A, B, C,or D) best fits each gap.

Bureaucracy

Given that bureaucracy is held in such ill today, it is hard to remember that it was once considered a great organisational innovation. By organising the of labour, by making management and decision-making a profession, and by providing order and a set of rules that allowed many different kinds of specialists to work in co-ordination toward a common , bureaucracy greatly extended to the breadth and depth of intelligence that organisations could achieve. Begun as a system of organasing government activities, it has to big business and large organisations of all kinds. Max Weber, who the systematic study of bureaucracy as its role in western society began to explode in the late nineteeth century, saw bureaucracy as both most efficient possible system, and a threat to the basic liberties he dear, thus foreshadowing the sentiments which bureaucracy frequently evokes today.

I scored 6 out of 6! But i think i did so well because i already knew about this subject and about Max Weber. I suppose this will seem more difficult to peope who aren't aware of the subject matter, so don't worry if you get 1 or 2 wrong!
no mistakes! i guess this was luck Emotion: nodding

So am I the only one who a) noticed that the quiz had a ton of grammatical and spelling mistakes, and b) recognized the irony of that? I'm amazed that everyone seems to have missed these howlers:

- "organasing"
- "nineteeth"
- "bureaucracy greatly extended to the breadth and depth of intelligence" (misplaced "to")
- "saw bureaucracy as both most efficient possible system" (missing "the")
- "efficient possible system, and a threat to the basic liberties" (misplaced comma)
- "thus foreshadowing the sentiments which bureaucracy frequently evokes today" (should be "that", not "which")

So, I got 6/6 in the quiz and then 6/6 again. Emotion: big smile
Emotion: love
I think it's good
3 out of 6, not quite good fr me Emotion: sad
