Question 15: Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions: The rules of etiquette in American restaurants depend upon a number of factors the physical location of the restaurant, eg., rural or urban; the type of restaurant, eg., informal or formal; and certain standards that are more universal. In other words, some standards of etiquette vary significantly while other standards apply almost anywhere. Learning the proper etiquette in a particular type of restaurant in a particular area may sometimes require instruction, but more commonly it simply requires sensitivity and experience. For example, while it is acceptable to read a magazine in a coffee shop, it is inappropriate to do the same in a more luxurious setting. And, if you are eating in a very rustic setting it may be fine to tuck your napkin into your shirt, but if you are in a sophisticated urban restaurant this behavior would demonstrate a lack of manners. It is safe to say, however, that in virtually every restaurant it is unsuccessful to indiscriminately throw your food on the floor. The conclusion we can most likely draw from the above is that while the types and locations of restaurant determine etiquette appropriate to them, some rules apply to all restaurant. The author uses the word “draw” in line 10 to mean .
Key word: draw, line 10, mean.
Clue: “The conclusion we can most likely draw from the above…”: The conclusion we are most likely to draw from the above…
Here the word draw means to give, to infer, so the most suitable answer is D. infer: infer.
