QUESTION 1

Read and summarize written text in your words.

Virgin Media is the first telecoms and media company in the UK to offer “quad play” to its customers, bundling ultra fast broadband, TV and fixed-line telephony alongside its existing mobile phone services. But with these expanding product lines comes increasing operational complexity. Historically, most of Virgin’s sales were made through calls to its contact centres, but as consumer preferences change, the company has recognised the need to move away from a culture that fostered competition between the different sales channels towards a unified approach.

*************************************************************************************************************

Answer 1 –  Virgin media’s ‘quad play’ offer helped the company introduce more product lines that brought the need to move towards a unified sales channel in order to handle its increasing operational complexity.

Answer 2 – Change in consumer preferences drove Virgin Media to diversify from existing conventional telecom services to a unified approach such as the ultra-fast broadband ‘quad play’ which, in turn, has increased operational complexities.

QUESTION 2

Read and summarize written text in your words.

With an abundance of low-priced labour relative to the United States, it is no surprise that China, India and other developing countries specialize in the production of labour-intensive products. For similar reasons, the United States will specialize in the production of goods that are human- and physical capital intensive because of the relative abundance of a highly-educated labour force and technically sophisticated equipment in the United States.

This division of global production should yield a higher global output of both types of goods that would be the case if each country attempted to produce both of these goods itself. For example, the United States would produce more expensive labour-intensive goods because of its more expensive labour and the developing countries would produce more expensive human and physical capital-intensive goods because of their relative scarcity of these inputs. This logic implies that the United States is unlikely to be a significant global competitor in the production green technologies that are not relatively intensive in the human and physical capital.

Nevertheless, during the early stages of the development of a new technology, the United States has a comparative advantage in the production of the products enabled by this innovation. However, once these technologies become well-understood and production processes are designed that can make use of less- skilled labour, production will migrate to countries with less expensive labour.
