Last night the phone rang while my family was in the middle of dinner. It was my Uncle Larry—my mom's brother-calling from
Indianapolis. My mother listened to Uncle Larry's words, and at first she looked alarmed. Gradually, her face relaxed, and she began to tap her foot
Finally, she said, "Thanks for telling me about the storm warning Larry, but my soup is getting cold. Can I call you back in half an hour?"
She hung up and sighed, "I love my brother, but he always thinks that the sky is falling."
What does the mother mean by saying that Uncle Larry "always thinks that the sky is falling"?
1. Uncle Larry frequently worries that a disaster is about to occur.
2. Uncle Larry does not realize that other people have busy lives.
3. Uncle Larry spends too much time obsessing about the weather.
4. Uncle Larry thinks that others should pay for expenses like phone calls.
The answer is 1. Uncle Larry frequently worries that a disaster is about to occur.
The answer is 1. because the sky falling is just a figure of speech which means a disaster or something bad is going to happen.
