What is the meaning of the word 'contraption' in this extract?

Answer as written by the student:

The word ‘contraption’ means a device or machine that looks strange or complicated and often does not work well.

Step-by-Step explanation of the answer:

To answer this question, we need to find out the meaning of the word ‘contraption’ in this extract. We can use clues from the context, such as the words around it, the tone of the author, and the theme of the story, to infer the meaning of the word.

 For example, in this extract, the word ‘contraption’ is used to describe a camera that made a lot of noise and often broke down. This implies that the camera was not a good or reliable device, but a strange or complicated one. The author also uses humour and irony in this extract to mock and criticize the film industry and its people. This suggests that he does not have a positive or respectful attitude towards the camera or its function. 

Therefore, we can infer that the word ‘contraption’ means a device or machine that looks strange or complicated and often does not work well.
