When stringing telephone lines between poles in the
summer, it is advisable to allow the lines to

When stringing telephone lines between poles in the
summer, it is advisable to allow the lines to
A.
B.
C.
D.
sag.
be taut.
be close to the ground.
allow ample space for birds.
Explanation:
Telephone lines are longer in a warmer summer and shorter in a
cold winter. Hence, they sag more on hot summer days than in
winter. If the lines are not strung with enough sag in summer, they
might contract too much and snap during the winter—especially
when carrying ice.
