Für wen liegt dieses Hotel besonders günstig?

Für Bootsfahrer

Correct Answer: 
No

Für Flugzeugpassagiere

Correct Answer: 
No

Für Motorradfahrer

Correct Answer: 
No

Für Zugreisende

Correct Answer: 
Yes

Choice (D) is correct. The question asks “For whom is this hotel favorably situated?” The options give us the choice of boaters (A), airplane passengers (B), motorcyclists (C), or train travelers (D). None of these groups are mentioned explicitly in the ad for the hotel, so we have to rely on another kind of clue. A favorably situated hotel is one that is physically close and easy to get to. With that in mind we can look for clues about the specific location of the hotel. We notice that it is gegenüber Hauptbahnhof — “across from the central train station.” This location is clearly convenient for train travelers, and no other location information is given; therefore, the correct answer is (D).
