Read the paragraph given below and answer the questions given. My phone rings again passage. It is futile to ignore it anymore. Maneesha is persistent, She will continue to bedevil me until I acquiesce. Hello, I answer. The circus, Atika? she says in her sing-song voice. When are we going? Only two more days left!

I abhor the Circus. The boisterous crowds, the overwhelming smell of animal feces, the insanely long lines with wailing children, and the impossibility of finding a clean restroom all combine to make this an event that I dread. For Maneesha, my best friend since the angst of middle school, the Circus is a sign that divine powers really do exist. Really, Atika, where else can you pet an elephant, see a stuntman ride a horse, laugh till you are ready to cry, see the world’s smallest person and eat fried potatoes and butter-soaked popcorn? Maneesha asks gleefully. Hell? I guess. The fried food at the circus is a
gastronomical nightmare on its own. I once tried a fried Cottage Cheese stick at the fair and was sick to my stomach for hours. And a fried burger with oil-soaked potato patty, cheese, multicolored sauces, AND a greasy slice of cottage cheese? how could that not be deleterious to your health? Why might
the author have chosen to capitalize all the letters in the word and when writing about the burger she ate?

To show that a greasy slice of cottage cheese was the last ingredient

To emphasize how many ingredients were in the burger

To make sure the reader understood it was a list

To highlight her dislike…
