Question

MCQ

Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

The blind Argentinean librarian and writer Jorge Luis Borges imagined paradise to be a kind of library. At the turn of the century, a lot of us were concerned about the future of books with digital publishing becoming the norm of the day. But people continue to read books, whether as a bound copy or as e-books on their handheld readers or tabs. What has changed perhaps is the drive to read, or rather the motivation. The relevance of the subject matter now impacts the reading contours of the people.

Which of the following statements is consistent with the reading pattern of people that have been discussed by the author?

Options

  • People these days tend to read only those books that are considered to be modish.

  • People these days tend to read only those books that are considered to be antiquated and equivocal.

  • People seldom read books, other than comic series, fashion magazines and news from the film world.

  • People have become very busy and hence, they prefer to read e-books because they can be carried anywhere.

Solution

People these days tend to read only those books that are considered to be modish.

People these days tend to read only those books that are considered to be antiquated and equivocal goes aganist the crux of the statement. Anything that is antiquated is irrelevant. In the given caselet, there is nothing to suggest that people seldom read books or have become very busy. 
In fact, the author says that “people continue to read books”. “Modish” means “contemporary” or relevant to the age.
