    • words which you might wrongly think could be the answer are in italics.

    • The keywords concerned in Q1 must be “name”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a name.

    • The police officer asks Anna to give him her first and last name. As her first name, Anna, is filled in the blank, the remaining answer to this question must be “Grieg”.

    Note: The police mistakenly believes that her last name is Greg. However, Anna immediately corrects it. Therefore, “Greg” is an incorrect answer.

     

  • 2 Answer: 15/03/1980
    • The keywords concerned in Q2 must be “date of birth”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a date.

  • 3 Answer: Ellendale
    • The keywords concerned in Q3 must be “address”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a name.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer can be a number.

  • 6 Answer: 8/eight months
    • The keywords concerned in Q6 must be “time of apartment tenancy”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a period of time.

    • According to Anna, she has been in Ellendale for 8 months. Therefore, the answer for this question must be “8/eight months”.

    Note: The police officer only concerns Anna’s tenancy time in Ellendale, not UK. Therefore, “1 year” is an incorrect answer.

    • The keywords concerned in Q7 must be “number of occupants”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a number.

SECTION 1

POLICE:    Hello, London Police Department.

ANNA:    Yes, I would like to report a robbery.

POLICE:    Alright, just a minute while I pull up the form. OK, could you give me your first and last name?

ANNA:    Anna Grieg.

POLICE:    Anna, Greg? G-R-E-G?

ANNA:    No, Grieg. G-R-I-E-G.

POLICE:    Got it. Alright moving on: gender - female. Date of birth?

ANNA:    15th of March, 1980.

POLICE:    Alright, thanks. Just a few more personal information questions and then we can address your claim.

ANNA:    Alright.

POLICE:    What is the address?

ANNA:    4 Ellendale St. That’s E-L-L-E-N-D-A-L-E.

POLICE:    Oh right, Ellendale Street: Yeah we’ve had a lot of break-ins in that area lately. And the postal code?

ANNA:    W5 2AT.

POLICE:    And are you a citizen of the UK?

ANNA:    No.

POLICE:    Okay, what type of citizenship do you have?

ANNA:    Well, I lived in the United States for most of my life, but I am actually of Grenadian nationality.

POLICE:    Okay, so    is that the    country that issued your passport?

ANNA:    Yes.

POLICE:    Alright.

POLICE:    And what is the crime you are reporting?

ANNA:    I already    said - a robbery!

POLICE:    Oh, right. Sorry, this is about the hundredth robbery report I’ve filled out today. Have you had any prior break-ins?

ANNA:    Um, in the building or just my flat? The unit below mine got broken into last year.

POLICE:    No, just your flat.

ANNA:    Oh - then no. Not here.

POLICE:    Alright, let’s see here. Can you think of anything that was out of the ordinary around your building, or anyone who may have had reason to do this?

ANNA:    No, it seemed like just a normal evening. I didn’t see anyone suspicious, and can’t think of anyone that would target me specifically.

POLICE:    How long has this been your place of residence?

ANNA:    Hm, let me think. I moved in on February 1, and it’s October, so it’s been about 8 months already. Wow, time flies!

POLICE:    And that is just for Ellendale, yeah?

ANNA:    Yes. I have lived in the UK for just over 1 year.

POLICE:    I see. Can you give me the first and last name of all members of the household?

ANNA:    Actually, I live alone.

POLICE:    OK - so no other occupants. And can you give me a brief account of what happened?

ANNA:    I left to go to a dinner party at 6 p.m., and when I returned at 11 I found the place ransacked and a lot of my things gone.

POLICE:    Any sign of forced entry?

ANNA:    Yes, the back door was wide open, and it looked like someone used a crowbar to force it open.

POLICE:    I see. And just to be clear, was the door locked when you left?

ANNA:    Of course!

POLICE:    Hey, you would be surprised how many reports we get where people have failed to lock their doors. Now I need you to list any missing items valued above £200.

ANNA:    So far I’m missing my computer, my purse with my wallet in it,

and the TV.

POLICE:    OK. Let’s start with the computer. What is the estimated value?

ANNA:    £500.

POLICE:    And what is the serial number?

ANNA:    G4168770.

POLICE:    Thank you, and a visual description?

ANNA:    It is a black    13-inch Pemdas Cloudbook. There is an Oxford sticker on the lid.

POLICE:    OK, and could you give a description of the purse?

ANNA:    Sure. It’s a Claude Frieda shoulder bag and the material is silver-colored cloth.

POLICE:    Price?

ANNA:    £300.

POLICE:    Okay. That concludes my report. I’ll submit it and we’ll let you know of any developments.
