B) Answers :

Task 1 (Comprehension) :

  1. Why is the couple upset? Give three reasons.

The couple is upset because of the kid’s behaviour in public as he was totally out of control and almost made the waitress dropped her tray besides that they couldn’t even hear each other speaking because of the loud noise in the restaurant while the parent of the child ignore all the mess caused by him and what’s makes it worse for the couple it’s was taking forever to get their food .

  1. I think  the more upset between the couple and waitress is the couples

than the waitress as she thinks it was hard to deal with the child’s behavior but it’s still a part of her job since not all parents keep thier kids under control however for the couple it was like a nightmare after all  the trouble they had to go through to get a babysitter for thier child to go out and eat a peacefull meal but they ended up with a noisy undisciplined kid and his unbrothered parents .

  1. Task 2 (Vocabulary and Idioms) :
  2. Based on the context of occurrence, what is the meaning of each of the following expression/word ?

1) All of a sudden =   it was unexpectedly for the couple

2) Out of control = Or undisciplined child that  struggle to manage his impulses effectively. A child that engage in actions without considering the consequences, leading to social, academic, or disciplinary problems .

3) Have a clue = the parent didn’t have a single idea about what their child was doing

4) Take forever = the meal took a long time to get to the couple

5) Go through the trouble of doing something = the couple spend  a lot of time and effort to get a babysitter for their child
