Paragraph Comprehension
People in danger of falling for ads promoting land in resort areas for as little as $3,000 or $4,000 per acre should remember the maxim: You get what you pay for. Pure pleasure should be the ultimate purpose in buying resort property. If it is enjoyed for its own sake, it was a good buy. But if it was purchased only in the hope that land might someday be worth far more, it is foolishness.Land investment is being touted as an alternative to the stock market. Real estate dealers around the country report that rich clients are putting their money in land instead of stocks. Even the less wealthy are showing an interest in real estate. But dealers caution that it's a “hit or miss” proposition with no guaranteed appreciation. The big investment could turn out to be just so much expensive desert wilderness.The Author of this passage can best be described as:
a. convinced
b. dedicated
c. skeptical
d. believing
