C. Was the old man mentally ill? What do you think? Give your opinion.

Answer:

I think the old man was not mentally ill. If he was mentally ill, he couldn’t tell the true things. He couldn’t produce coherent sentences. In this text, the old man talked about past in order. He also wanted to talk about the future of the traveler. Both of them talked harmoniously.
