    5) Lesser people patronize the shop due to the lack of trolleys to help them

  23. 1) the supermarket loses money since everyone is taking the trolley's away.

    2)what is like everyone is like talking on the phone with a friend then they trip on a trolley and falls down then the trolleys falls and hits another person causing that person to faint since the trolley is to heavy and he loses a lot of blood causing him to go to the hospital.

    3)when the trolleys are taken it is a criminal offence so when the police come and investigate, they will get arrested but they might try to escape via the trolley and ride their way out and they might not have control of the trolley and fall down and injure themselves and eventually go to the hospital and get caught by the police after that

    4)because then supermarket will eventually have insufficient trolleys to provide their customers

    5)at night people rollerblading hit the trolley falls down rolls down a slope hits the elderly causing them to fall down and lose their walking sticks and spectacles and they can't see because it's dark and they can't find their way home because they fell down and knocked their heads and they have amnesia all of a sudden

  24. 1.supermarket lose money
    2.In the night, people will not see trolleys that are not returned and crash into it. more trolleys when people try.
    4.people get free(maybe rotten) food.
