Dear teachers,

Would you please tell me which of my choices you would rule out?

It took John only 1 a) a few / b) SOME (?) minutes [we cannot say c) ONLY FEW minutes, can we?] to wash and shave, and as he doesn’t usually have 2 a) much / b) any time for breakfast, he was ready to go in less than half an hour. He ran to the station and found very 3 few passengers waiting for the early morning train. He fortunately had 4 a) SOME / b) a little / c) ENOUGH [does it make sense ?] time to wait. When the train came, he was 5 a) little (?) / b) A LITTLE / c) VERY / RATHER / QUITE (?) surprised to notice that his compartment was empty. He had had difficulty in rising at such an early hour and he only got used to it 6 a) a few / b) SOME / c) MANY weeks later and he came to realize that the earlier he rose, the more relaxing his day would be.

Are there other possibilities I didn't think of ?

Thank you very much indeed.
Best regards,
Hela

Yes, you can, but it changes the meaning. Two hours may not be enough time for breakfast for some people.
Thank you Mr Micawber.

Kind regards,
