1.      Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow.                            

The flight was delayed by three hours and, for once the airline had sent the information in time.  Except that it came in the form of an SMS and since the message inbox on the mobile was full, the recipient never got to see the message about the delayed take off. And  as a result, he had to waste three hours at the airport.   And  what were those messages that had clogged the message box? One was an announcement about a contest; the other was promoting a marriage bureau, yet another, a dating service.

Sounds familiar? Today, telemarketing has gone beyond being just an irritant.  Earlier it invaded our privacy, disturbed us at home and at work.  Now they have even begun to affect our lives adversely and can therefore no more be taken lightly.

Several  consumers have missed  important communications  because of telemarketing messages jamming their mailbox.  They have missed out on job opportunities, business deals. And they are not just upset, they are angry.

At one time,  consumers saw telemarketing  as a necessary evil  and wanted a "No  Call Registry"  to prevent such calls  to those who didn't  want to wish to receive  them, but today they want a blanket  ban on telemarketing  .  And this  call  for a prohibition and not a restriction is slowly getting louder.

So it is in the interest of those who are making these unsolicited (or sending messages) to regulate them, keeping in mind the interest  of the consumers. Or else,  there might well be a strong demand for a clampdown on telemarketing  per se.

Write the option you consider  most appropriate.

(a)    An important SMS could not reach the person as-consequently  :

(i)    he'd not checked the inbox-he missed the his flight.

(ii)    he was busy on calls-he  couldn't  reach the airport in time.

(iii)   his mobile  inbox  was choked with  messages-  he had to wait three hours.

(iv)    his  cell  phone battery was not charged-  his  flight was delayed

(b)    Telemarketing  angers people because :

(i)      it invades  their  privacy.

(ii)    it gives us information on worthless things.

(iii)   it does not inform them of jobs and deals.

(iv)    it irritates  them and prevents vital information from reaching  them.

(c)    'To prevent  such calls'- 'such calls' means :

(i)      illegal telemarketing calls.

(ii)    unsolicited telemarketing.

(iii)   late  night calls.

(iv)    landline  calls.

(d)    A demand for a blanket ban on telemarketing is as warning to telemarketers to :
(i)      reduce the numbers of messages/calls they make.
(ii)    take permission from the consumers before calling.
(iii)   make judicious use of telemarketing calls.
(iv)    stop making  any calls.
(e)    The word  'clampdown'  means :
(i)      to hold something tightly.
(ii)    to forcefully do  something.
(iii)   to take strict action  to stop/ban  something.
(iv)    to take legal  action  against something.
