Question of the Day (09-Jan-17)
The following question has a paragraph from which the last
sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the one that
completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way.
In all countries there are many, among even the most refined and highly cultivated classes, who are not at all embarrassed by any moral delicacy. This is especially the case in those countries in Europe, particularly on the Continent, where the idea of the allowableness of falsehood in certain cases as a means for the attainment of a good end, is generally entertained. The French have two terrible bugbears, under the names of Monsieur and Madame Croquemitaine, who are as familiar to the imaginations of French children as Santa Claus is, in a much more agreeable way, to the juvenile fancy at our firesides. Monsieur and Madame Croquemitaine are frightful monsters, who come down the chimney, or through the roof, at night, and carry off bad children. They learn from their little fingers - which whisper in their ears when they hold them near - who the bad children are, where they live, and what they have done. ___________________________
