Tim recently graduated from the university and was looking for a job.After searching on the Internet，he found out that a famous online business company is recruiting a new office manger.Many candidates applied for the entry exam，but only one would be accepted in the end.
Tim noticed the resumes(简历) of other candidates and was surprised to see that some of them held a Master’s Degree or even a Doctor’s Degree.But Tim was only a Bachelor，and barely met the lowest requirement of the diploma.Tim felt a bit frustrated because he had no advantage over other candidates who were excellent students.
All the candidates entered the exam hall after handing up their resumes.Tim scanned through the pages of the test paper and found out that the questions were very difficult for him.Tim tried to calm down and focus on the questions themselves instead of their difficulty level.He started with the easiest ones and moved on to the more difficult ones slowly.
There were two invigilators(监考人) in the hall，one of them was tall and thin，while the other invigilator was of the opposite: he was short and fat.They seemed to be quite confident about the honesty of the candidates and were absentminded.After about 10 minutes，one of the invigilators left to answer a phone call.The other invigilator soon went out too.
The atmosphere in the exam hall changed after the invigilators had left.Some of the candidates took out notes and books，some of them brought tablets to search for answers，and some even called others for help.Tim looked back，and he saw the candidate sitting behind him cheating too.The man winked to Tim，as if telling him to cheat in the test because everyone was doing so.Tim shook his head and continued doing the difficult problems at a slow pace.
In about half an hour，the invigilators returned to the exam hall.Tim still had one question left blank at the end of the test.He was almost sure that he was not going to be accepted.
The test result was to Tim’s surprise.
Tim then understood everything that had happened.
【答案】1 The test result was to Tim’s surprise.After one week，Tim received an email from the company saying that he was accepted as the new officer manger.The next day，Tim went to the company and knocked on the door of the chief manager’s office.Before Tim said a word，the chief manager smiled at Tim and asked Tim whether he could remember that they had met before.Tim was very confused until the chief manager explained that he was the candidate sitting behind Tim in the test.
2 Tim then understood everything that had happened.The test was carefully arranged to test whether the candidates were honest even if no invigilator was there.The chief manager continued to say that their company was established based on honesty of the employees.The job of office manager would require the candidate to be independent and honest.In consideration of this，they found that Tim was the most suitable candidate to hold this position.
