Question

MCQ

Direction : Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

Anita: I sold my house through a real estate agent last year and was happy with the price that I received. My house was sold quickly, and I did not have to suffer any advertising hassles. I would advise against selling your house through Internet websites, newspapers or magazine listings.
