QUESTION 50

The following paragraph lacks completeness/development? 

A midwinter vacation at Club Happy Feet Resort has its good points and bad points. The beaches are clean and un-crowded. The surrounding countryside is lush and soothing to winter-weary eyes. Furthermore, being able to take sailing and scuba diving lessons, while friends back home shovel snow, makes the outdoor activities extra-enjoyable. On the other hand, several features of Club Happy Feet are substandard. The food is poor, and, because the club is isolated, eating elsewhere is impossible. Security could also be better, as thefts from several guests’ rooms indicated. So, for some vacationers, nice scenery and fun activities may not be enough to offset the possibility of poor service and lax security.

a. True

b. False
