SAMPLE QUESTION 1:

Provide evidence from the text to support…show more content… John got a lot of information from Mrs Fischer.
Firstly, John learnt about Janos Szabo.
Secondly, Janos had a wife and daughter. His wife was Andrea. His daughter was Kati. They died in an explosion in Gergely utca. (chapter 12, page 40, 41)
Thirdly, she told John that his face looked like Janos.
John found out that “Janos Szabo” meant “John Taylor” (chapter 15, page 46)
John and Janos were born on 23 October. (chapter 15, page 48)
John was determined to find out about any related incident that happened on 18 January.
He went to the Budapest City Library. He read many old newspapers. He learnt about a mother and her child who died in an explosion in Gergely utca. The explosion happened on 18 January 1945. The mother’s name was Mrs Szabo. (chapter 11, page 33, 34, 35)
John felt that this incident might relate to his problem.
Upon learning about Mrs Szabo, he went to Gergely utca. He met the housekeeper and Mrs Kovacs. However, they did not know any Szabo Family. (chapter 12, page 37)
He went to Felka utca. He met a man named Mr Szabo. Mr Szabo moved to Felka utca in 1956. So, he was not the right Szabo. John did not give up. (chap 12, page 37, 38)
Then, he met with Mrs Fischer. Mrs Fischer told John about Janos Szabo. Janos had a wife and daughter. They died in an explosion in Gergely utca. Janos’s wife and daughter were called Andrea and Kati. Mrs Fischer told John that his face looked exactly like Janos. (chap 12, page 40, 41) (chap 15, page 46, 47)
