    What clues does this nonfiction text give about the author's perspective on nature?


    During my first semester of high school, I sometimes felt tired and stressed. Endless thoughts of what I had to do, to study, and to learn looped constantly in my brain, and my heart raced sometimes in class. But then I found the nature preserve. The preserve was so quiet I could hear the twigs crack under my feet as I hiked up the hills.

    Q.

    Which sentence describes the author's perspective on television?


    Television is a magic box that can instantly transport us through time and space. With one finger on the remote control, we have the power to summon great performances from the past or visit faraway places. It can be a wonderful thing—if we do not abuse it. We must try always to watch only high-quality programs, and never to choose television over time with our families or friends. Otherwise it loses its magic, and becomes nothing more than a distraction.

    answer choices

    Television shows only quality programs.

    Television has the potential to be either good or bad.

    Television is always bad for people.

    Television is always a wonderful thing.
