Direction: The following passage followed by questions based on its contents. After reading the passage.

As advertisers become more and more expert at their work, they appeal to all the human emotions in the effort to increase sales greed, jealously, love of a bargain, fear of the disapproval of other people, fear of ill health, the desire to catch a husband, the desire to show off, and many others. But more and more customers are also becoming suspicious of and resistant to high-powered advertisements. This is producing, in highly sophisticated countries, a deliberately modest, self deprecating type of advertisement that is intended to disarm the suspicions of sophisticates by giving an impression of absolute sincerity, or even deliberate understatement. Soon we may have the strange spectacle of advertisers vying with each other, with Eastern courtesy, to belittle the merits of their own merchandise.
