English Comprehension – Very Short Passages 11-20

Passage 17 – Whether you can accomplish a specific goal or meet a specific deadline depends first on how much time you need to get the job done. What should you do when the demands of the job exceed the time you have available? The best approach is to divide the project into smaller pieces. Different goals will have to be divided in different ways, but one seemingly unrealistic goal can often be accomplished by working on several smaller, more reasonable goals.

The main idea of the passage is that
a. jobs often remain only partially completed because of lack of time.
b. the best way to complete projects is to make sure your goals are achievable.
c. the best way to tackle a large project is to separate it into smaller parts.
d. the best approach to a demanding job is to delegate responsibility.
