                        Time: 2 hours         
                                                  Second Term Exam
Part One: Reading                                                                                                    (15pts)                                                                                                                                                                
A.  Comprehension :                                                                                                 (7pts)                                                                                                                                      
Read the text carefully then do the following activities.
      Business ethics is knowing right from wrong in the workplace setting. It concerns the effects of products and the needs of people who have an interest in the company (called stakeholders). Business ethics also focuses on the well-being of everyone because of the power over society that modern businesses hold.
     Consider why you should be ethical. Sometimes it’s easier and more lucrative to act unethically in business. So why act ethically? For the same reasons you stop at red lights when driving, even when no one else seems to be on the road. Following the rules makes doing business safer for everyone, including yourself. However, often being ethical goes beyond established rules and laws.
      Learn the ethics "rules of the road." While it is true that some of ethics are grey areas and several philosophies prescribe different solutions to ethical problems, there are some basic ethical ideas. Some of these ideas include not hurting anyone (physically or emotionally), telling the truth, acting fairly, contributing to society and refraining from prejudice. Thinking through the consequences of actions is the hallmark of an ethical businessperson.
     Find out the origin of mistakes in business ethics. Ethics is not the “good people” versus the “bad people”, it’s ethical actions versus unethical actions. To understand ethics, you must understand what causes people to take unethical actions. It’s true that some people act unethically for both personal gain and because they don’t care about the impact of their actions. However, more often unethical actions come from employees who are confused, fatigued or stressed.
