Directions: Read the passage carefully and answer the question No-1 -5
A hundred years ago there was much less specialisation in work than there is today. One furniture maker would make the whole of a table- indeed, perhaps, all the furniture needed to furnish a house, and he worked in a simple workshop, probably entirely with hand tools. The Furniture he made was very good and very beautiful, but it would take him a longtime to make it. The output of one man was, by modern standards, small, and the cost of the Furniture relatively high. Only the fairly wealthy could afford a great deal. Most modern furniture is made in fatories with the aid of machinery. So now-a-days a man working in a furniture factory will, perhaps spend his days mindling one machine which carries out one process only in the making of table legs. A great number of men will be taking part in the various process which go to making the table, and by this division of labour a great many tables will be made in a comparatively short time. A good workman however should understand all the process which go to make the table, even though he himself actually does only one of them. In the making of more complicated things, such as cars or elaborate pieces of electrical machinery, even this is not possible. It is very likely even that all the processes do not go on in the same factory.
