PASSAGE
The New Year is a time for resolutions. Mentally at least, most of us could compile formidable lists of do’s and don’ts. The same old favourites recur year in and year out with monotonous regularity. Past experience has taught us that certain accomplishments are beyond attainment. If we remain inveterate smokers, it is only because we have so often experienced the frustration that results from failure. Most of us fail in our efforts at self improvement because our schemes are too ambitious and we never have time to carry them out. We also make the fundamental error of announcing our resolutions to everybody so that we look even more foolish when we slip back into our old bad ways.

The author seems to think that others
A.  feel happy when we slip back to our old ways B.    do not really want us to improve ourselves
C.  are ready to tease and laugh at our attempts D.    might embarrass us by praising our attempts

A.  we set too high goals for ourselves B.    we do not have the persistence of mind
C.  our nature is such that we cannot become perfect D.    certain imperfections have become a part and parcel of our lives
