    LUGUBRIOUS and SORROWFUL are both synonyms. Hence, the answer should be Euphoric and Cheerful, which are also synonyms. Frenzied and excited are also related but excited does have the same negative connotation that frenzied does. Hence, option 1.

    Von Nuemann and Morgenstern assume a decision framework in which all options are thoroughly considered, each option being independent of the others, with a numerical value derived for the utility of each possible outcome (these outcomes reflecting, in turn, all possible combinations of choices). The decision is then made to maximize the expected utility.

    In a large company, (1st) ………… people is about as common as using a gun or a switch-blade to (2nd) ………… an argument. As a result, most managers have little or no experience of firing people, and they find it emotionally traumatic; as a result, they often delay the act interminably, much as an unhappy spouse will prolong a bad marriage. And when the firing is done, it's often done clumsily, with far worse side effects than are necessary.

    Do the world-class software organizations have a different way of firing people? No, but they do the deed swiftly, humanely, and professionally.

    The key point here is to view the fired employee as a "failed product" and to ask how the process (3rd) ………… such a phenomenon in the first place.

    Fill 1st blank according to following,


    Choose correct answer:
    Options
    1) 
    dismissing
    2) 
    punishing
    3) 
    firing
    4) 
    admonishing

    Here, it boils down to 2 options: firing and dismissing. However, I feel it is firing as the latter part of the sentence talks about the use of a gun and switch-blade. Hence, option 3.
