THE FIRST TERM ENGLISH TESTSECTION ONE: READING COMPREHENSION : Read the text carefully then do the activitiesWhen we communicate through e-mail, it is easy for us to be rude to our correspondents at the receiving end of the line. The reason for this is very simple. In face-to-face communication, we use speech to communicate what we want to say to our interlocutors. The way we say the words is very important. Our tone of voice indicates our emotions to them and shows if we are pleased or angry. In addition we use gestures and facial to emphasize what we say and to show our interlocutors that we are saying something very important. The interlocutors can either nod or shake their heads to indicate agreement or disagreement. It is different when we communicate through e-mail. Our correspondents can neither see our gestures nor hear the tone of our voice. So we forget about our good manners more quickly.Some e-mail users don't watch their manners at all when they communicate through e-mail. These manners consists of a code of conduct which e-mailers call 'netiquette'. Netiquette sets the correct form for professional e-correspondence in order to make e-mailing less rude and more enjoyable.1- How many negative sentences are there in the second paragraph?
