    Could you confirm or correct my question?

    Hi teachers,
    Needed information: A man stopped in front of a shop and looked at a picture.
    If the sentence is, 'At first I felt interested, then I felt angry, then afraid.'
    Could this be a suitable question? What were his feelings when he saw the picture?
    Is there a better one?


    Thanks in advance.

    That's fine. The correct answer would be "First interest, then anger, then fear."

    You can also ask "What did he feel?" or "What were his emotions?"
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your reply. Could the correct answer also be, "First interest, then anger, and finally fear,"?

    Best,
