(10)____________ Rey Mauros Head Teacher B. Reading Comprehension

Rumor is the most primitive way of spreading stories by passing them on from mouth to mouth. But civilized countries in normal times have better sources of news than rumor. They have radio, television, and newspaper. In times of stress and confusion, however, rumor emerges and becomes rife. At such times the different kinds of news are in competition: press, television, and radio versus the grapevine. Especially do rumors spread when war requires censorship on many important matters. The customary news sources no longer give enough information. Since the people cannot learn they pick up news wherever they can and when this happens, rumors thrive. Rumors are often repeated even by those who do not believe in tales. There is a fascination about them. The reason is that the cleverly designed rumor gives expression to something deep in the hearts of the victims the fears, suspicions, forbidden hopes, or daydreams which they hesitate to voice directly. Pessimistic rumors about defeat and disasters show that people who repeat them are worried and anxious. Optimistic rumors about record production or peace soon coming point to complacency or confidence and often to overconfidence. 1. The author is primarily concerned with a. The nature of the rumor b. The fascination of rumors c. Rumor as primitive mans newspaper d. The breeding places of rumors 2. The author suggests that rumors usually a. Alarm their hearers b. Are hardy in their growth c. Are disheartening d. Can be suppressed by censorship 3. According to the passage, people who repeat rumor as truth want to do so because they: a. Are impressed with the antiquity of this method of spreading news b. Are naturally gullible and willing to be duped c. Have a deeply ingrained pessimistic strain d.

Philosophical interest When I arrived at a few minutes before seven, I found the platoon assembled and ready to go. It was cold, and in the ranks the men were shivering and dancing up

and down to keep warm. I was only the second-in-command of the platoon at that time, under instruction from senior lieutenant, who was the platoon commander. Punctually at seven I said to Broadhurst, March off, Sergeant. To the aerodrome, at the double. Broadhurst asked doubtfully whether we hadnt better wait for the platoon commander, who had not turned up. Unversed in the ways of the army, I said, No, march off. The men are cold. We double off. Three or four minutes later the platoon commander, who had about fourteen years of service, appeared. He was in a towering rage. He rushed straight to Broadhurst and asked him furiously what he meant by marching off without permission. Broadhurst said, Im sorry, sir. My feet wouldnt move. My mouth wouldnt open. I made a gigantic effort and said, Sir But the lieutenant had given Broad hurst a final blast and taken command. I looked at Broadhurst, but he was busy. After the parade I apologized to him, but I never explained to the lieutenant. Broadhurst told me the incident wasnt worth worrying about. 6. It can be inferred from the passage that the narrator never explained the truth to the platoon commander because: a. Army custom forbade him doing so b. He felt that the incident was unimportant c.
