Read the following passage and answer the questions:

Traditionally, readers of literature, postulated an instantly responsive reader and strove to read like one. It is possible, however, to replace this postulate with the postulate of an initially unresponsive reader. Although it is strictly a postulate, it seems to correspond to observed reader behaviour at first meetings with a literary work. It is well known that the first reaction to unfamiliar music is one of puzzlement, apathy, or even dislike and that only continued exposure builds up a ‘taste’ or a capacity for response. This applies, in varying degrees, to music in general and then at lower levels of generalization, to a composer, a composition, a musician or singer, and an individual piece of music or a song. It similarly applies, again, varying degrees to literature, a genre, an author, a literary work and a particular passage.

(A) readers of literature are dumb

(B) readers of literature are believed to naturally respond to texts

47. That readers naturally and instinctively respond to literature is a/an _______

(A) antiquated view

(B) modern view

(D) erroneous view


48. On what basis does the author advance his postulate of “an initially unresponsive reader”?

(A) Personal observation

(B) Observed behaviour of readers

(C) Behaviour of observant readers

(D) General statistical information
