Some professionals see their careers as changing and evolving over time. They are able to embrace and even anticipate changes in their fields. These professionals are the first to learn and employ new technologies. Other professionals view their current knowledge and methods of doing business as sufficient for their entire career and therefore often respond to changes in a hostile way, refusing to learn new techniques and technologies. The clearest example of this hostile attitude toward change is ____________

Which of the following best completes the passage above?
We need to find an example where we see hostility towards learning new technologies/methods

A - when faced with new computerized printing techniques a professional calligrapher designs a printer font based on her own calligraphy
The calligrapher is improvising. This does not show hostility towards change.

B - an accountant who chooses to specialize in one of the two new accounting programs rather than gain a superficial knowledge of both
Accountant chooses one program instead of two. He/she is ready to learn at least what one new program has got to offer. This also does not show hostility towards change.

C - a successful architect who reacts to the introduction of computer drafting programs by rejecting those programs in favor of traditional drafting methods
Architect rejects new computer drafting programs and wants to use traditional method. This shows hostility towards change and is the CORRECT ANSWER.

D - when the managing partner of a law firm instructs members of that firm to learn to use new software designed for legal research
Manager encourages the use of new software. This does not show hostility towards change.

E - when a college professor begins using a modified version of an accounting program to keep track of student’s grades despite the fact that the software was not designed for this use
Professor is improvising by user new version of an accounting program. This does not show hostility towards change.
