Q.No: 1 At nine O'clock in the morning, towards the end of November, the Warsaw train was approaching Petersburg at full speed. It was thawing, and so damp and foggy that it was difficult to distinguish anything ten paces from the line to right or left of the carriage windows. Some of the passengers were returning from abroad, but their third class compartment were most crowded, chiefly with people of humble rank, who had come a shorter distance on business. All of course, were tired and shivering, their eyes were heavy after the night's journey,
and all their faces were pale and yellow to match the fog.

In one of the third class carriages, two passengers had from early dawn been sitting facing one another by the window. Both were young men, not very well dressed and travelling with little luggage, both were of rather  striking appearance and both showed a desire to enter into conversation. If they both had known what was remarkable in one another in that moment, they would have been surprised at the chance which had so strangely brought them opposite one another in a third class carriage of the Warsaw train. One of them was short man about twenty seven with almost black curly hair and small grey fiery eyes. He had a broad and flat nose and light cheek bones. His thin lips were continually curved in an insolent, mocking and even malicious smile. But the high and well shaped forehead redeemed the ignoble lines of the lower part of the face. What was particular about the young man's face was its death like pallor which gave him a look of exhaustion in spite of his sturdy figure, and at the same time an almost painfully passionate expression. He was warmly dressed ina full, black sheep–skin lined overcoat and not felt the cold at night, while his shivering neighbor had been exposed to the chill and damp of Russian November for which he was evidently unprepared.

Choose the right option regarding the space given to the passengers for description in the first paragraph of the passage :

A The passengers of humble rank are given less space than that given to those returning from abroad.
B The passengers of humble rank are given more space than that given to those returning from abroad.
C Both the passengers – the passengers of hunble rank and those returning from abroad – are given equal space
D It is uncertain to decide
