    farther away

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody by Will Cuppy:

    "During his reign of fourteen years, the outlying provinces are said to have prospered. They were farther away."

    What does "they were farther away" imply?

    They were farther away from the center of power. (Farther away than other provinces.)
