READING

Read the text and the questions below. For each question mark the correct answer: A, B, C or D.

This is a true story told by an American journalist.

Last Friday I decided not to go to work as I had a terrible headache. I took my laptop and walked down to a
nearby café. I wanted to have my breakfast and check my emails there. I’d been in the café for an hour
when several well-built men wearing semi-formal black suits came in. They would go to the customers and
say something in a quiet voice. I didn’t understand what was happening. Next to me, the café staff had
made a long table. Five young people were sitting around it. They were well-dressed and seemed nervous.
The head of their table was still vacant. I assumed someone important would be coming.

The Internet wasn’t working well and I decided to go to a different café, so I asked for the bill. Then a man,
one of those dressed in semi-formal black suits, came by and said: ‘You are welcome to stay. The President
will be stopping by. One of our security guards will inspect you’. ‘Oh’, I thought. ‘The President of what?’
And then, I understood that these well-built men were the security guards who were inspecting the
customers as the President of the country was coming soon.
I don’t care about politics and disagree with the President about plenty of things, but none of this kept me
from experiencing immediate, feverish anxiety. Later, when the President arrived, stepping out of his
luxurious car smiling, my nervousness suddenly disappeared. The President shook hands with exactly half of
the people in the café. Then he sat down at the head of the table where a group of five young people were
sitting. As I learnt later the meeting had been planned long before as the President wanted to discuss with
the young people a new healthcare law for university students.

I heard only some pieces of their conversation such as ‘thirty percent’ or ‘not public yet’. Later they
changed the subject and talked about cell phones and social media. I am a journalist and had already
decided to write an article about this meeting; so, every word I would catch was interesting to me. The
President mentioned that his daughter didn’t get her own cell phone until she was 16. This surprised
everybody including me. Then I overheard the President saying ‘It seems like they don’t use Facebook
anymore.’ I am not sure whom the President meant by they but this surprised me even more. Then the
meal was over. The President took a photo with the five young people. The crowd cheered as he went out
and got back into his luxury car.
