Make Sure to Get Extra Seasoning on Those Fries

Read the following and decide on the tone of the writer:

The coach yelled at us for losing the game. I didn't see what the big deal was. It's not like we're professional athletes or anything. Besides, my mom is taking me to Bojangles after the game whether we win or lose.

Is the tone of this passage:
a. angry 
b. ecstatic
c. indifferent 
d. sarcastic

Scroll down for the answer


C - indifferent (this means that the person does not care one way or the other)

D - is wrong because the level of sarcasm in this passage is much lower than the level of indifference - HOWEVER - D is the best wrong answer, so your guessing skills aren't too far off

A - is wrong because the coach is angry, not the speaker

B - is wrong because ecstatic means very, very happy and while Bojangles should be enough to make anyone happy (mmm...Bojangles), the speaker is not showing great happiness
