    towards means what?

    Does the 'towards' mean 'facing' or 'near' in the sentence below (with no context)? I suspect it means 'near' but I'm not sure.

    He was sitting towards the rear.

    He was sitting towards the rear.

    Yes, it means that he was sitting near the back (of the room or bus, for example).
