the following story of a strange incident.
For questions 1 to 5, choose () the best answer (a, b or c).
I think that one of the strangest things
that ever happened to me occurred about
ten years ago. It was when I was travelling
by train to see my parents for the Christmas
holidays. I remember I had with me a rather
large bag; I've always found it impossible
to travel anywhere, even for a few days,
without packing too much.
Because it was Christmas time, my train
was rather crowded, and there was no room
for me to put my bag inside the compartment.
I therefore decided to leave it outside
the compartment, next to the door. Then
I found myself a seat, got out my book,
and settled down for the rest of the trip.
Everything was perfectly normal until the
third stop, when for some reason - I don't
quite know why - I thought I should check
to see if my bag was still OK. So I got
up, went to the door and slid it open. The
bag had gone!
Feeling quite sick and not really knowing
what to do, I ran to the window and opened
it, hoping to find a porter to help me.
And there on the platform I saw a tall man
calmly carrying my bag toward the exit.
I couldn't believe it, especially since
he didn't look like a thief. I was just
going to shout after him, when something
very strange happened. The man simply stopped,
placed the bag on the ground, and carried
on walking toward the exit. And he did this
without seeing me because I was behind him
and he was walking away from me.
Of course, I didn't hesitate. I jumped out
of the train, ran to my bag, picked it up
and hurried back onto the train just as
it started moving. I put it down, inside
the compartment this time, and sat down,
breathless after all the excitement. Of
course, I was relieved that I now had my
bag, but I still couldn't understand why
that person had done such an extraordinary
thing. It's a minor incident, I suppose,
but I will always remember it.
