Note: Read the passage gien below, and answer the question based on your understanding of the passage.

                One of the major drawbacks of the legacy systems was that it did not have an integrated approach. There would be an accounting system for the finance department, a production planning system for the manufacturing department, an inventory management system for the stores department, and so on. All these systems would perform in isolation. So if a person wanted some information which had to be derived from any of these tow systems, he had to get the necessary reports from both systems and then correlate and combine the data.

                But in reality, an organization cannot function as islands of different departments. The production planning data is required for the purchasing department. The purchasing details are required for the finance department and so on. So if all the information islands, which were functioning in isolation, were integrated into a single system, then the impact of that would be dramatic, For example, if the purchase department can see the production planning details, it can make the purchasing schedule, if the finance department can see the details of the purchase as soon as it is entered in the system, it can plan of the cash flow that will be necessary for the purchases.

                Because the systems work in isolation, collecting and analyzing the data needed for the functioning departments, as well as getting information about some aspect that is dependent on more than one department, becomes a difficult task. But no business executive or decision maker can take good decisions with the isolated data that he will get from the various reports produced by each department. Even if he collates the data and produces the information that he requires, he would have lost valuable time that would have been better spent in decision-making for that process.

(A) Accounting system

(B) Planning system

(C) Inventory management system

(A) from each system and correlate

(B) from one system at a time for correlation

(C) dramatic impact

(D) huge profit

49. Collecting and arranging data is:

(A) needed for library personnel

(B)needed for functioning department
