    Default Need help with a text

    Could you help me decide if the statements below the text are true,false or not mentioned?

    Sofia Gramatopoulus is Marketing Manager at Food & Wine , an expanding medium-sized business in Thessaloniki.She coordinates the work of the team of three people.Kayavis has suppliers in eleven countries in Europe and America,so Sofia often travels abroad.Next week she is going to Canada to visit their new subsidiary.She is very reliable and hard worker.She often works overtime and speaks Greek,English and Danish.At the moment she is attending an intensive German course because the owner of Kayavis is thinking of opening a large shop and a restaurant in Munich.So far they are considering different proposals from several potential partners.The final decision will be based on the most favourable conditions offered.
    Sofia is told in advance that she will have to work in Germany for six months,so she is preparing herself for her new assignment as best as she can.

    1 Kayavis has eleven suppliers. (True,False,Doesn`t say)
    2 Sofia is difficult to work with. (True,False,Doesn`t say)

    Here are my answers:
    1 True
    2 False
    3 True
    4 True
    5 Doesn`t say
    6 Doesn`t say
    7 ?
    8 Doesn`t say
    I`m not sure about the seventh statement because it says 'few languages'.It would make more sense if it said 'Sofia knows a few languages.'

    1 Doesn't say- we know how many countries; she could have two or more suppliers in one country
    3 False- thinking of not going to
    4 False- several candidates, but they will decide on one
    6- Unclear- If Kayaivs is missing from the first line, before Food and Wine, then it is false because it is a medium-sized company.
    7 Few without the article implies something negative, so I would say false because three and a fourth is quite good.
