  Select and indicate one answer choice from among the choices provided.

  Directions for questions 21 through 23:

  Each of the following questions includes a short text with two or three blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. You will be asked to select the word or phrase that best fits the corresponding blank in the text.  Fill all of the blanks in the way that best completes the text.

  Now consider the text with the three options inserted in place of each blank.

  New technologies often begin by (a. uprooting, b. dismissing, c. mimicking) what has gone before, and they change the world later.  Think how long it took power-using companies to recognize that with electricity they did not need to cluster their machinery around the power source, as in the days of steam.  Instead, power could be (d. transmitted to, e. consolidated around, f. incorporated into) their processes.  In that sense, many of today's computer networks are still in the steam age.  Their full potential remains unrealized.
