Section C Compound Dictation
解析：此处需要谓语动词。根据短文 可知应用 ，而该句主语为复数department stores，故此处用动词原型。
解析：根据前面的two可知此处需要复数名词。category n. 种类。
解析：此处需要可以与for搭配的形容词。词尾-ible不要写成-able。要记住哪些词尾是-able，哪些是-ible。be responsible for“对……负有责任”。
解析：根据语篇的话题和上下文可以预测用词的范畴，文中的五个divisions前面的空格都是指它们的职能，所以此处肯定不是近音词personal，此外注意有两个n。personal a. 个人的；personnel n. 人事部门。
