Read the passage and answer the question that follow.


(1) Downtime is important. We all need it, and many of us are on a mission to find more of it and figure out just how to spend it. This top 3 list of hobbies from around the world is quite surprising. It’s no wonder why people love hobbies regardless of location or interests. Hobbies have many benefits; they can bring enjoyment, structure, or spontaneity to our lives. They allow us to connect with others and learn new skills. Plus, our hobbies give us interesting topics to discuss with friends, family, and coworkers. They relieve stress and make our lives more fulfilling.
(2) With global trends moving towards health and fitness it is surprising that the top ten hobbies involve little or no action. Topping the list is reading. If your idea of a fun Friday night is cozying up with a book, you’re certainly not alone. Reading is enjoyed worldwide; it’s accessible due to the fact that it’s inexpensive (or free), and it allows people to explore new and exciting worlds and expand their knowledge. The second is travelling, whether it’s a trip across the ocean or exploring the next town over, travelling is an exciting hobby virtually anyone can participate in. From the planning stage to the trip itself, travelling gives people something to look forward to, along with a brief escape. Plus, the memories last a lifetime. Believe it or not, fishing ranked as the third most popular hobby. If you need a break from the daily grind, unwind with a fishing trip. Whether you’re fishing for food or just for fun, the hobby is a great way to relax and enjoy nature.
(3) Interestingly neither video games nor TV have made it to the top three although playing video games is on the rise, it has not yet had a considerable impact on the top things to do to relax. This may be because they are often seen as quite exciting past times. Watching TV or playing a video game can increase the heart rate and make it difficult to sleep after. Whereas reading for example is generally considered something that people do just before nodding off. It’s hard to imagine falling asleep while playing fortnight. There are also other considerations to take into account. Many young people don’t watch TV. They prefer YouTube or some other online media outlet so it could just be that the statistics just don’t show the full picture.
(4) Although capricious, guessing the next trend may not be impossible. By looking at social media it is clear that there are health fads that could be on the rise and if we take into consideration that soon there will be another Olympics then there is most likely going to be a shift from the static to the more active hobbies that are available. Although for very good reason reading will probably never leave the top three. It is easy to see that a slightly more energetic activity may well start to top the global list as will gaming and most probably other things too.



The writer thinks there will probably be a ___________.

Achange to the whole list within the next few years
Brise in more active hobbies over the coming years
Cthe amount of programmes that are watched
Dreduction in the amount people read


It's written that the correct answer is A but shouldn't it be B?
