IMAT 2018 Q3 [Conclusion | Restaurants]

Competition between restaurants is fierce and restaurateurs are trying to gain recognition for the quality of their food. Research from Oxford University might just give them that edge over their competitors. More than a hundred people participated in a series of experiments to see if the taste of food was affected by the cutlery used to eat it. The study found that desserts tasted better when eaten using small spoons. Similarly yoghurt tasted creamier when eaten with a black spoon. Cheese cut with a heavy knife tasted more expensive than cheese cut with a lighter knife.

Which one of the following is a conclusion that can be drawn from the above passage?

A. People choose restaurants only because of the quality of the food.

B. Restaurants should think carefully about what cutlery they use.

C. Restaurants should pay less attention to food presentation.

D. Customers pay attention to the cutlery they are using.

E. Variety of cutlery is more important than quality of food.
