Question

Which phrase in passage 1 tell us the most about lonnie's character how he approaches new experiences?

1 Answer

  • The phrase in passage 1 that tells us the most about Lonnie's character and how he approaches new experiences is:

    A. "When Celeste had emailed to ask him to meet her train, his first instinct had been to say no." (paragraph 1)

    • The fact that Lonnie is hesitant about meeting Celeste at the station reveals a lot about his character.
    • The two were friends when they were kids, but have only kept in touch via email after growing up. Now that Celeste wants to see him again, Lonnie thinks of saying no.
    • That shows Lonnie prefers to avoid new experiences. He most likely enjoys sticking to what he already knows well, to events and people that he can predict.
    • Since he cannot predict what will happen when he finally meets Celeste after so long, Lonnie feels reluctant.
    • With that in mind, we choose letter A as the best option.

    The answer choices for this question are the following:

    A. "When Celeste had emailed to ask him to meet her train, his first instinct had been to say no." (paragraph 1)

    B. "So here he was, waiting." (paragraph 1)

    C. "Instead, he was waiting for someone he hadn't seen in years." (paragraph 1)

    D. "Plus, all his friends had gone to this awesome film festival downtown, and he'd to skip it." (paragraph 1)
