Question 13 (B)

Read the given extracts and answer the questions for ANY ONE of the two, given.

Usually, when school began, there was a great bustle, which could be heard out in the street, the opening and closing of desks, lessons repeated in unison, very loud, with our hands over our ears to understand better, and the teacher’s great ruler rapping on the table. But now it was all so still! I had counted on the commotion to get to my desk without being seen; but, of course, that day everything had to be as quiet as Sunday morning. Through the window I saw my classmates, already in their places, and M. Hamel walking up and down with his terrible iron ruler under his arm. I had to open the door and go in before everybody. You can imagine how I blushed and how frightened I was. (The Last Lesson)

Which of the following headlines best suggests the central idea of the extract?

A. The Fears of a Latecomer

B. The Importance of Punctuality

C. The Rigidity of the School System

D. The Anxiety of a Young Student

Answer:

The correct answer is B. The Importance of Punctuality.

Step-by-step explanation by Teachoo:

  • option A. The Fears of a Latecomer. This headline does not match the extract because it does not reflect the central idea of the extract. It only describes one aspect of the protagonist's situation❌
  • option B. The Importance of Punctuality. This headline matches the extract because it describes the main theme and message of the extract. The extract revolves around the concept of punctuality and the consequences of being late. This headline captures the central idea of the extract well.✔️
  • option C. The Rigidity of the School System. This headline does not match the extract because it does not focus on the main character or his dilemma. This headline is too narrow and irrelevant for the extract.❌
  • option D. The Anxiety of a Young Student. This headline does not match the extract because it does not specify why or how the young student is anxious . This headline is too general and incomplete for the extract.❌

Therefore, the correct answer is B. The Importance of Punctuality.
