    is this good English

    Could you, please, tell if you understand easily the test below. Is this good English?

    1.At a restaurant the waiter overcharges you:
    а) you wouldn’t give him the tip that he would have gotten if he hadn’t lied;
    b) you would ask him to check the bill once again with you;
    c) you would make a scandal out of this;

    2.You are staying at a holiday house. The receptionist is busy with things other than his/her duties – doesn’t see to it that your room is clean or that the menu is balanced. Does this make you outraged:
    а) yes, but that’s all I can do;
    b) you will find a way to complain against him even if he might get punished because of you;
    c) you will bring the issue to the inferior staff;

    Hi, there
    Yes the language is easily understood. But I have a question as far as 2c is concerned. Don't you mean superior staff?
    Hope I have helped.
