C. Reading comprehension
4. read the following passage and answer the questions below:
 Video and television are responsible for the declining interest in reading among the
young. While they may be harmless in themselves, they do nothing to build up reading
skills. If some of the children spend time watching television were devoted to reading, the
population would be better educated.
 Watching a story is a totally passive pastime. Someone else has made the decisions
about everything in the story. Reading a story is an active partnership between writer and
reader. Ideas are sketched and the mind of the reader creates the rest. Watching
something is easier.
 The problem is that many children read very slowly. They decode a page or two in a
clss and about the same again for homework. It is hardly surprising that such children
then declare that they find reading boring and prefer to watch television. Their difficulty
is not reaing the words – it is interesting them . They need to be able to read fast enough to
feed the mind’s hunger for a strong and independent reader.
 Parents need to be convinced of the importance of preventing their children from
wasting their hours on inert viewing. Without the television the child is likely to turn to
books for entertainment.

1. What is the writer’s main objection to video and TV?
2. Why is watching a story easier than reading it?
