not live up to what the producer says for it, the first step is to present the warranty(保修卡), or any other records that might help, at the store of buying. In most cases, this action will produce results. However, if it does not, there are various means the consumer may use to gain satisfaction. A simple and common method used by many consumers is to complain directly to the store manager. In general, the “higher up” the consumer takes his or her complaint, the faster he or she can expect it to be settled. In such a case, it is usually settled in the consumer’s favor. Consumers should complain in person whenever possible, but if they cannot get to the place of buying, it is acceptable to phone or write the complaint in a letter. Complaining is usually most effective when it is done politely but firmly and especially when the consumer can show clearly what is wrong with what was bought in question. If this cannot be done, the consumer will succeed best by presenting specific information as to what is wrong, rather than by making general statements. For example, “The left speaker does not work at all and the sound coming out of the right one is unclear” is better than “This stereo does not work”. The store manager may advise the consumer to write to the producer. If so, the consumer should do this, stating the complaint as politely and firmly as possible. But if a polite complaint does not achieve the expected result, the consumer can go a step further. He or she can threaten to take the seller to court or report the seller to a public organization responsible for protecting consumers’ rights. 41. What does the passage mainly tell us? A.

Their different attitudes towards their work result in their different wages. From the story I
can conclude that those who take positive attitude towards work will be rewarded. Different attitudes lead to different results. Take Xiao Hua and Xiao Li as an example. They are both my classmates. Not only does Xiao Hua put his heart into study but he is also helpful to both teachers and students. So he has become a top student in our class, even in the grade. With his diligence and concentration, he is bound to succeed in entering his ideal university. However, Xiao Li never cares about his study because he is addicted to playing games. He turns a deaf ear to the teachers’ advice. As a result, he falls far behind others in his study. In my opinion, the attitude is everything. No matter what you do, you must do it well even if you may fail many times. Sooner or later you will be rewarded for your positive attitude towards your work or life
