Piccadilly Circus was full of loneliness.It seethes and echoes with it. To live near it. Looking down on it is a discomforting exercise. You can't feel the pulse of London here, though people expect to. To Londoners it is a maddening obstruction between one place and another, and few voluntarily linger there. The only locals are those who live off the lingerers; the lingerers are primarily sightseers, with a fair sprinkling of people hoping to draw attention to themselves - both typically from the provinces. They have come to see the heart of London and expect to see spectacle, glamour and vice.


The passage implies that

[A]. some Londoners love to spend their time near the Piccadilly circus
[B]. no Londoner wants to be in Piccadilly circus
[C]. Piccadilly circus is a hazardous place
[D]. Piccadilly circus is place of vice

Answer: Option C

Why hazardous place. Which line in para depicts the answer? Can anyone explain it?

Why is it hazardous?

The meaning of "hazardous" is "risky" or "dangerous".

There is nothing in the passage that makes even indirect sense that the Piccadilly Circus is a dangerous place.

All Londoners who live and cross there makes the place an obstruction may be an eyesore.

Therefore the correct answer is B.

Here "few voluntarily linger there" is written. Hence, I think "A" should be the answer.
