    What do the people do?

    Hello!
    I used a reading comprehension question in a test where there was a text about Thais. In the first paragraph there was a short description of Thailand, in the second paragraph a description of their physical appearance, in the third a description of their jobs, in the fourth their family life and food, and in the fifth free time activities and celebrations. The reading comprehension questions were: 1. Where is Thailand? 2. What do Thais look like? 3.What do the people do? 4. What do they love eating?. What answer do you find appropriate for What do the people do? Would you offer the points to an answer about their free time activities?
    Thank you for your help!

    If you haven't specifically asked what the people do for a living, then you can't deny points to students who say what the people do in their free time.
