Question: 203

3. The reaction of the members of the league to Madam Walker's speech can be described as

  • A. indifferent
  • B. angry
  • C. sad
  • D. favorable

Correct Answer: D


D is correct. The reactions of the audience are indicated in parentheses throughout the speech. The fact that the audience reacted with applause, laughter, and prolonged applause indicates that their reaction was favorable. It is unlikely that the audience would applaud and laugh if they were indifferent (choice A), angry (choice B), sad (choice C), or critical (choice E) of the speech.
