A passage is given with five questions following it. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives and click the button corresponding to it.
My mom grew up in a traditional Chinese family in which open expressions of love were never encouraged. When she had me and my three siblings, she treated us with the same hard hand. It was not that she was a slave driver or anything, but she never openly showed affection. Instead, she demonstrated that she cared in more practical ways.
My parents couldn’t have been more different emotionally. My dad is a really open-hearted person who constantly showers us with hugs and kisses no matter the occasion. After much persuasion from him, my mother did try to change, but it was clear that she never felt quite right expressing her emotions. Eventually, she reverted to her old self.
The difference between my parents was never starker than whenever I brought home good test results from school. My dad would practically jump with joy, offering warm and affectionate words of congratulations, and my mother? “Ah, good, good” she would typically say with a tense smile etched on her face. “Do better next time, OK?”
I tried not to hold a grudge against her for being so reserved. That was just her way. I reasoned.
How is the narrator's dad different from her mother?

  • He is dark

  • He expresses his feelings openly

  • He dislikes children

  • He is persuasive in nature
