READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
John used to brush his teeth once, just before bed. The dentist always bugged him to do it at least twice a day, but it was annoying to wake up and brush his teeth before he ate. He was hungry and just wanted to eat.
Then, his mother complained about his morning breath one day, "It smells like I have an evil dragon for a son!" She lamented. The embarrassment of having his mother say such a thing got him to brush his teeth in the morning. Now he was up to twice a day, but he still hated flossing.
Flossing hurt. It squeezed his fingers almost to death when he wrapped the floss around his fingertips. Then he had to slide it between his teeth, usually cutting up his gums to the point where he spit out blood. It was gross and uncomfortable, and the next day it ached.
Then he saw his friend using flossers with relative ease. Flossers didn't pinch your fingertips, because the floss was on a plastic holder. They went in easy and weren't nearly as bad. What's more, his friend told him, "You'll be scared of how much the floss stinks when you pull out old food your toothbrush misses. It's gross!"
Indeed it was. He smelled the floss that pulled old food out his back teeth, and it smelled like something rotten. To think he'd had that stuff in his mouth and didn't even know about it. That was nasty! Yet, he still didn't like gargling.
Once he got a little older, his older sister, who was in high school, explained to him, "No girl is ever going to come close to you if you don't gargle." He was only in the fifth grade, so he wasn't too worried about that yet, but he thought he might some day. So, he tried gargling with mouthwash, and while he didn't like the flavour much, he did like how cool and fresh his mouth felt afterward.
And you know what? His dentist visits were having fewer problems too. He stopped getting cavities, which meant less painful drilling, and the dentist was always telling him he was doing a good job with his mouth. He was proud of his smile!
Which of the following statements is true?

A John liked flossing because it didn't hurt his gums and hands.
B He was in fourth grade and wanted to get close to girls.
C Gargling with mouthwash left his mouth cool and fresh.
D His dentist continued to bug John for the rest of his life.

Research has shown that the human mind can process words at the rate of about 500 per minute, whereas a speaker speaks at the rate of about 150 words a minute. The difference between the two at 350 is quite large. So a speaker must make every effort to retain the attention of the audience and the listener should also be careful not to let his mind wander. Good communication calls for good listening skills. A good speaker must necessarily be a good listener. Listening starts with hearing but goes beyond. Listening involves hearing with attention. Listening is a process that calls for concentration. While listening, one should also be observant. In other words, listening has to do with the ears, as a well as with the eyes and the mind. Listening is to be understood as a total process that involves hearing with attention, being observant and making interpretations. Good communication is essentially an interactive process. It calls for participation and involvement. It is quite often a dialogue rather than a monologue. It is necessary to be interested and also show or make it abundantly clear that one is interested in knowing what the other person has to say. Good listening is an art that can be cultivated. It relates to skills that can be developed. A good listener knows the art of getting much more than what the speaker is trying to convey. He knows how to prompt, persuade but not to cut off or interrupt what the other person has to say. At times the speaker may or may not be coherent, articulate and well organised in his thoughts and expressions. He may have it in his mind and yet he may fail to marshal the right words while communicating his thought. Nevertheless a good listener puts him at ease, helps him articulate and make it easier for him to get across the message that he wants to convey. For listening to be effective it is also necessary that barriers to listening are removed. Such barriers can be both physical and psychological. Physical barriers generally relate to hindrances to proper hearing whereas psychological barriers are more fundamental and relate to the interpretation and evaluation of speaker and the message.
What makes any listener a good listener? A good listener _______.

Aalready knows what the speaker is going to say
Bis able to articulate the speaker's thoughts and ideas
Cdoesn't interrupt the speaker, and helps put his/her point across
Donly A and B
