English Including Comprehension

Questions 31-35

Direction: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

Why don’t I have a telephone? Not because I pretend to be wise or pose as unusual. There are two chief reasons; because I don’t really like the telephone and because I can still work and play, eat and sleep without it. Why don’t I like the telephone? Because I think it Is a pest and a time waster and it can create suspense and anxiety, as when you wait for an expected call and it does not come. It can also cause irritating delay, as when you keep ringing a number that is always engaged. As for speaking In a public telephone booth, it seems to me really horrible. You would not use it unless you were in a hurry, and because you are in a hurry, you will find other people waiting before you. When you do get into the booth, you are half suffocated by the stale, unventilated air; and by the time you have begun your conversation, your back is chilled by the cold looks of somebody who is moving about restlessly to take your place.
If you have a telephone in your house, you will admit that it tends to ring when you least want it to ring; when you are asleep, or in the middle of a meal, or when you are just going out, or when you are in your bath. Are you strong minded enough to ignore it, to say to yourself. “Ah well, it will be all the same in
hundred years time”. You are not. You think there may be some important news or message for you. Have you never rushed dripping from the bath, or chewing from the table or dazed from bed, only to be told that you are a wrong number? If your telephone rings and you decide not to answer it, then, of course, you will have to listen to an idiotic bell ringing and ringing In what is supposed to be the privacy of your own home.
