I have to travel every day from the bus stop near the City Hall to the port. Two buses travel along this route; the number 2 and the number 11. However by the time the number 11 bus reaches the City Hall, it is always full, so I use the number 2 which sometimes has empty seats on it.
The time table states that there are buses from the station to the port every ten minutes. If this is so why do I have to wait half an hour for a bus?
The regulations state that no bus may carry more than 40 seated passengers and 20 standing passengers. Yesterday I was the first to get off the bus when it reached the port; I counted the other passengers as they got off. There were 129 of them.
Clearly printed on the back of every bus a sign that says: maximum speed 50 m.p.h on Saturday a number 2 bus travelled from the City Hall to the Hero Monument in 10 minutes. The distance is 12 miles. The bus must have speeded at speed at least 80 m.p.h!
It is clear that our bus companies have no respect for the regulations or passengers.

Jawabannya pada paragraf 1. Penulis mengambil bus nomor 2 karena The other bus going to the port is always full (bus yang lain yang pergi ke Port selalu penuh) bus yang lain dimaksud adalah bus no. 11.
Sudah jelas di paragraf 4. Maximum speed: 50 m.p.h.
Tanda batas kecepatan ditempelkan di bagian belakang setiap bus (a sign of the maximum speed is printed on the back of every bus ) bertujuan untuk bisa dibaca oleh semua orang bukan hanya penumpang (passenger), supir (driver), terlebih pengguna jalan lain (other road user).
