Hi teachers,

According to this sentence:

At midday he found a quiet field and lay down under some small trees.

Is it possible to ask the following question?

Where did Alex arrive at noon?

He arrived at a quiet field.

Thanks in advance.

Thinking SpainWhere did Alex arrive at noon?'arrive' isn't quite right. It almost implies a scheduled arrival or an intent to arrive at exactly that place, but the sentence doesn't seem to be dealing with that sort of thing. I would have asked one of these instead:

Where could Alex be found at noon?

Where did Alex go at noon?

Where was Alex at noon?

Thank you for you reply.

I'll pick up this one. To me, it seems the best because he was escaping from the police when he found that field.

Where was Alex at noon? He was in a quiet field.
