Which electric appliance emerged in the postwar era?

A. The vacuum cleaner

B. The clothes dryer

C. The sewing machine

D. The stove/oven

A

Answer: A. The vacuum cleaner

The vacuum cleaner emerged after World War II and became common among the middle classes. It was predominantly common in Western countries because other countries then weren’t used to wall-to-wall carpeting. Although the first vacuum cleaners were invented in 1901, they were too big and weren’t efficient enough. It was not until the postwar era that it was made smaller and more affordable to the public.
