Kindly explain the line from Ranga's Marriage (Snapshots) -
" He knew when it would be of advantage to talk to someone and rightly assessed people's worth. "
The line means that he knew the correct time to talk to people according to their mood. Sometimes when we talk about something to someone and they are not in the proper mood, then we do not get the proper response. But the narrator has the ability to assess the mood and the opportunity. He was also able to assess the character and personality of a person.
