5. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given at the end : (5)

We all have company manners and home manners. If you were to call on a strange family and listen through the keyhole not that I would suggest for a moment that you are capable of doing such a very unladylike or ungentlemanlike thing; but still-if, in your enthusiasm for studying languages you could bring yourself to do it just for a few seconds to hear listening to them, and then walk into the room and hear how very differently they speak in your presence, the change would surprise you. Even when our home manners are as good as our company manners and of course they ought to be much better they are always different, and the difference is greater in speech than in anything else. Suppose I forget to wind my watch, and it stops, I have to ask somebody to tell me the time. If I ask a stranger, I say, "What o'clock is it?" The stranger hears every syllable distinctly. But if I ask my wife, all she hears is "cloxst". That is good enough for her, but it would not be good enough for you. So I am speaking to you now much more carefully than I speak to her, but please don't tell her!
