    “In my view it is that we should seek by all means in our power to avoid war, by analyzing possible causes, by trying to remove them, by discussion in a spirit of collaboration and good will.

    Unconditional Surrender

  • Q15

  • Q16
    Read the question and choose the best answer. "Hitler is a man of simple tastes, a vegetarian for health reasons, a non-smoker and teetotaler. Possessed of extraordinary vitality, four hours' sleep and twenty hours' work make up his normal working day... As a speaker, Hitler exercises astonishing sway over a German audience, presumably because public speaking is an unknown art in Germany. His speeches are practically repetitions of a few simple main theses, in the course of which platitudes are uttered with such extraordinary emphasis that an unsophisticated audience mistakes them for newly minted aphorisms. He has sized up the German audience during his fifteen years of apprenticeship with astonishing accuracy. This and an undeniable political instinct has brought him to the top of the tree."—Short description of Adolf Hitler prepared by the British Embassy in Berlin, January 1937 According to the author of this text, which characteristic led to Hitler's political success?
    his healthy habits
    his ability to work long days with little sleep
    his ability to communicate with the public
    his remarkable intelligence
