 LOMOV : It's cold... I'm trembling all over, just as if I’d got an examination before me. The great thing is , I must have my mind made up. If I give myself time to think, to hesitate, to talk a lot, to look for an ideal, or for real love, then I'll never get married. Brr...It’s cold! Natalya Stepanovna is an excellent housekeeper, not bad-looking, well-educated. What more do I want? But I'm getting a noise in my ears from excitement. (Drinks) And it’s impossible for me not to marry. In the first place, I'm already 35— a critical age, so to speak. In the second place, I ought to lead a quiet and regular life. I suffer from palpitations, I'm excitable and always getting awfully upset; at this very moment my lips are trembling, and there’s a twitch in my right eyebrow. (The Proposal)

Which of the following is NOT a reason why Lomov thinks he must marry?

A. He is already 35 years old.

B. He suffers from palpitations.

C. He is excitable and easily upset.

In this extract, Lomov mentions several reasons why he thinks he must marry. Let's analyze the given options:

  • option A . He is already 35 years old: Lomov mentions that he is 35, which he considers a critical age , so this is a reason.
  • option B . He suffers from palpitations: Lomov talks about his health issues , including palpitations, which supports the need for a quiet and regular life through marriage. So, this is also a reason.
  • option C. He is excitable and easily upset: Lomov states that he is excitable and gets upset easily , which is another reason for him to seek a stable life through marriage.
  • option D. He is in love with Natalya: In the extract, Lomov doesn't mention being in love with Natalya. He describes her as a good housekeeper, well-educated, and not bad-looking, but he doesn't mention love.

So, the correct answer is:

D. He is in love with Natalya😊
