 A well dressed young man entered a big textile shop one evening. He was able to draw the attention of the salesman who thought him rich and likely to make heavy purchases. He was shown the superior varieties of suitlengths and sarees. But after casually examining them, he kept moving to the next section where readymade goods were being sold and further on to the hosiery section. But then, the salesmen had begun to doubt his intentions, and drew the attention of the manager. The manager asked him what exactly he wanted, and he replied that he wanted courteous treatment. He explained that he had come to the same shop in casual dress that morning and drawn little attention. His pride was hurt and he wanted to assert himself. He had come in good dress only to get decent treatment not for getting any textiles. He left without making any purchase.  


Question: 1 - The young man moved away to the hosiery section because he—


was not interested in purchasing anything


did not like the readymade clothes


wanted better clothes


was restless
