Part-4 : Reading Comprehension
Read the following passage and answer questions 8 to 10
The overwhelming vote given by the greater part of the public has so far been in favour of entertainment which passes the time easily, and
satisfies that part of our imagination which depends on the more obvious kind of daydreams. You can argue that these daydreams are usually
substitutes for our own inactivity, ineffectualness, and lack of power or influence, so that we make up for what we secretly regard as our
deficiencies by watching the stimulating adventures of other people who are larger, stronger, more effective, or more beautiful than we are. The
conventional stars act the roles of other people who are larger, stronger more effective, or more beautiful than we are. The conventional West, or
in the jungles we will never visit (we would not dare to, most of us, if we could), or in the underworld of great cities where crime and violence
may not pay in the end, but are very exciting to watch if your youth is being spent in the day-to-day routine of school or office, on the one hand,
or in the kitchen and living - room of 39 Blank St, on the other.
Whether we admit it to ourselves or not, most of us are very conscious of deficiencies in our looks, our clothes, and the circumstances of our
homes. But on the screen we can feast our eyes on people selected to appear because of their good looks, dressed in expensive and sometimes
extravagantly showy clothes, and moving about most of the time in the plushy environment of wealth. What you cannot have yourself, at least
you can continuously look at surrounding other people, and, who knows, one day you may have these things too, like the stars who have come
up from nowhere but now earn large fortunes!
