I. Reading

Read the text and choose the best answer (A, B, C, D) for the sentences (14).

In the year 1872 little was known about Phileas Fogg except that he was a perfect gentleman. He might have been 40. There was hardly a wrinkle on his face and he cut a tall handsome figure.

He spoke as little as possible, and this silence made him all the more mysterious. He was evidently very efficient; he would always go the shortest way and never make a useless movement. He never hurried but he would always be in time. No one would ever see him disturbed or put out; he seemed even-tempered enough.

Phileas Fogg was wealthy, but no one knew how he had made his fortune. He had probably journeyed far and wide for he had an extensive knowledge of the world. In fact, he could have travelled everywhere; there was not a place, however far away, that he did not seem to know well. Yet he had not left London, where he lived by himself, for many years.

It was no secret though that he was a member of the elite Reform Club. He went only to his club daily where he lunched and dined in the same room and at the same table, always alone. Then he would spend time at the club reading the papers or playing cards. Anyone could see that Phileas Fogg played cards only for the sake of playing and not for the sake of winning but needless to say, he always won and naturally, he gave all his winnings to charity.

No one else could have been more precise in his ways than Phileas Fogg. He spent exactly half a day at home and half at the club. He always left his house for the club at 11.30 every morning and left the club for his home at 11.30 every evening. He also demanded that the servant he employed to look after him be as punctual and regular in his ways.

That explains why on the morning of 2 October Mr Fogg was waiting to interview a new servant. The previous man had brought him his shaving-water at the temperature of 84 degrees instead of the correct 86. He was instantly dismissed, of course.
