Saima je ye to Handouts men bi hy r men ne wahen se hi Solution nikala hy, so ye conforim kren ke wo theek hy ya nhi plzzzzzzzzzz.

In my opinion solution of Mujahid is correct. Any other view?

aap ko read karna hay sab o auj case k sath jo relate kary wh he ho ga

I have read that more than 20 times.. i am unable to make a proper decision.

yes saima  in table fillin ur ans is corect 

Benevolent authoritative system (2)

Just as in an exploitive authoritative system, decisions are made by those at the top of the organisation and management. However employees are motivated through rewards (for their contribution) rather than fear and threats. Information may flow from subordinates to managers but it is restricted to “what management want to hear”.

Consultative system (3)

In this type of management system, subordinates are motivated by rewards and a degree of involvement in the decision making process. Management will constructively use their subordinates ideas and opinions. However involvement is incomplete and major decisions are still made by senior management. There is a greater flow of information (than in a benevolent authoritative system) from subordinates to management. Although the information from subordinate to manager is incomplete and euphemistic

I think Mujahid Hussain decision was good enough. i am not sure , but after reading those cases and saima's idea, i think We can trust Mujahid Solution.
