Dear Simon which book have these questions been take from?
thanks

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. C
women's code of dress is less strict = the choices that men have are more limited

2. A
wish to be taken seriously = otherwise they'd be discounted as trivial

Vocabulary:

- stray away from = move / go away from
- narrow boundaries = strict limits / limited options
- dress down = dress in an informal way
- discounted = disregarded, not given consideration, ignored, judged negatively
- trivial = unimportant, not serious

Hai, Simon,

2.A
- The reason why I chosen these is that in script relative to first question, the paragraph keep saying about 'limit' , and to second question, the paragraph saying about 'less feminine' and 'discounted'.
