She told them all to be quiet. She listened to a question that seemed mundane and quite pointless five times. She didn't answer.

In my opinion this is not strictly an LP. I've tried to make it as L as I can, but I'll spiol if people seem to get bored

How many of them? were they adults? children? men? women? non-human animals?

So she was asked five times the same question by the same person. She did not answer. There was a group of 5-10 people and animals around, which was told to be quiet. Is this correct?

Or was she the caller?

Are the people told to be quiet with her in the room and the one asking on the phone?

Did she understand the question? Did she know the answer? Did she not want to answer it?

So, the person asking was with her in the room?

Did the caller tell her something unpleasant? When asked the question, was she in such a state of mind (because of what she had just heard) that she almost did not perceive the question?

So, the person asking was with her in the room? No - just realised I misunderstood your last question and answered wrongly, sorry. The people who are told to be quiet are in the room with her, and the person on the phone is asking her the question. Apologies :(

So this is on the wrong track too because of the above

Did she want to answer the question?

Did she not want the others with her to hear her answer the question?

Was she in any danger? Were any of the others in the room with her in danger? Was the man on the other end of the phone in danger?

**** SPOILER *******
This was from a comedy sketch I recently saw.

Picture the scene...it is Christmas afternoon and the family are sat round playing with their new toys, talking, bickering, the TV is on, the dog is barking. In the midst of all this mayhem the phone rings, and Mum picks it up. "Quiet! I'm on the phone...No what did you say.....no I'm sorry I didn't catch that....QUIET!!!!...What am I what?....Can someone shut that dog up please...look I didn't hear you, I'll go outside". She leaves the room and shuts the door.
"Sorry about that, what was it you wanted again?"
"I said 'WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?'!! [dirty chuckle]"

I had actually been looking for a stalking horse but they're too expensive and I haven't anywhere to keep one.
