Question No - 1

The silence of the Reference Library was broken only by an occasional cough and by the sound of pages being turned over. There were about twenty people in the room, most of them with their heads bent over their books. The assistant librarian in charge of the room sat at a desk. She glanced at Omar as he came in, then went on with her work. Omar had not been to this part of the library before. He walked around the room almost on tiptoe, afraid of disturbing the industrious readers. The shelves were filled with thick volumes. He found nothing interesting, until he came to photography section, which was one of his hobbies. The books in this section were on a high shelf out of his reach, so he had to fetch a small ladder to get one down. Unfortunately, as he was climbing down the ladder, the book slipped from his grasp and fell to the floor with a loud crash. Twenty pairs of eyes looked up at him simultaneously annoyed by this disturbance. Omar felt himself go red as he picked up his book. He found the young lady assistant standing alongside him. "You must be more careful when you are handling these books," she said severely. She turned to go back to her desk. Then a sudden thought struck her. "By the way, how old are you?" she asked Omar. "Thirteen," he told her. "You're not allowed in here under the age of fourteen, you know," the assistant said. "Didn't you see the notice on the door?" Omar shook his head. He expected the assistant to ask him to leave. Instead, in a more kindly tone, she said: "Well, never mind. But make sure that you don't disturb the other readers again, otherwise I shall have to ask you to leave” . 1) The central idea of the passage is ……
