Read the following passage and answer the required questions:

I walked into a popular restaurant recently and heard someone talking in a very loud voice. I was intrigued because this is a good restaurant which most people enjoy eating at very much. The staff are helpful and courteous, the food is delicious, and the people who come there are, for the most part, regulars. You can thus imagine my surprise when I heard a loud, angry voice booming from a table nearly. Now. I'm a curious person by nature, so I walked over to the nearest table I could get to. I walked over to the nearest table I could get to. I saw a guest frantically, gesticulating both at the server as well as his food. His body language was screaming anger and indignation, as were his facial expressions. He was very loudly telling the server how he was paying for good food and therefore he demanded nothing but the best, as well as the highest order of respect. He mentioned that he was a food critic on an online forum and that he would write an honest review of the restaurant. I zoned out of his tirade and looked around at the other people there to grab a (usually) happy lunch. Nearly everyone was starting at the guest, some with a look of disbelief. Would you like dealing with someone as aggressive as him? There is an important difference between being aggressive and being assertive. While aggressive communication makes people withdraw from you and want to avoid you assertiveness makes people want to follow you. Add to this the art of persuasion and you have a winning combination.

Choose the correct answer from the options given below:

Solution

*Note: The question options have errors in the original CUET paper.*

The correct answer is Option D

The passage mentions that nearly everyone in the restaurant stared at the guests, some in disbelief. This indicates that the guest's behaviour was noticeable and perceived as aggressive by others present. Therefore, Statement C is correct.

Statement A. The passage does not explicitly state whether the guest was treating the waiter. It only describes the guest's behaviour and interaction with the waiter, focusing on the guest's demands and demeanour. Therefore, option A cannot be considered correct.

Statement B. While it's true that the guest demanded good food, the passage also emphasizes that he demanded the highest order of respect from the waiter. The focus is not solely on the quality of the food but also on the guest's insistence on being treated with respect. Thus, statement B is not entirely accurate.

Statement D. The passage describes the guest's behaviour as loud, angry, and demanding, which aligns with aggression. However, it also mentions that there's an important difference between being aggressive and being assertive. While the guest's behaviour may be perceived as aggressive, there's no indication that he was exhibiting assertiveness in a positive manner. Therefore, statement D, stating that the guest was both aggressive and assertive, is not entirely accurate.
