Trevor No Comments

The true test of Business English understanding lies in accurate data interpretation and fluency.

In your opinion, are they difficult or easy peasy?

Answer: Monday or Friday. 

There’s a possibility of rain on Wednesday and Thursday, so those two days are our of the question. Tuesday is right in the middle of the week and would be needlessly disruptive for the company workflow. Monday and Friday are good options because they are near the weekend and would be the least disruptive.

Saturday would also be a possibility if the company decides to hold business activities during the weekend; however, this is up to each individual company.

Answer: Graph is confusing, so both answers are possible. 

False: If you focus on the ‘color key’ alone it would seem as thought he ‘blue’ for Returning visit is less, which renders the statement false.

True: If you look at the numeric values (blue 75, orange 60), it would seem as though that this is an overlapping chart, and there are more returning visits than new visits.

Conclusion: The best advice is to avoid confusing charts.
