  • Answers:
    Q1: A
    Ignorance is correct. The first cartoon demonstrates ignorance of hearing aids and loop systems. The other three portray people who seem ignorant of the fact that the disabled are real people.
    “Do you think they like sugar” and “sometimes I think he understands every thing we say” exhibit heavy condescension but this is not evident in the first cartoon (and less so in the third).
    The cartoons portray disability, not inability. And humility is the human quality of being humble and modest.
