Hi teachers,
According to this paragraph:
Baxter jumped out of the car even before Halls stopped it, and ran after Coke. Halls jumped out, too. He didn’t even switch off the headlights.
All Coke’s training as a soldier helped him now. Baxter was just behind him when Coke suddenly turned. Baxter tried to grab him but almost lost his balance.

Could you correct or confirm these questions?
a) How fast did Baxter jump out of the car? Even before Halls stopped it.
b) What was useful for Coke now? His training as a soldier.
c) Where was Coke when he suddenly moved around? He was in front of Baxter.
d) What happened when Baxter quickly attemped to take and hold Coke? He almost lost his balance.

Thanks in advance.

moved around ~ walked (slowly, and almost randomly) from place to place
to spin around ~ to turn suddenly

to grab ~ to apprehend; to seize; to take hold of (from most to least formal)

Hi Jim,
Thank YOU very much for your reply.
On my first thought, I used 'soon', but then I changed it. Silly me!
Excellent explanations.Emotion: yes
