A Passage to India: setting
Read the text below and find the five mistakes in it.

The novel is set in the old Indian town of Chandrapore. The town is divided into the old Indian quarter and a British Company Station. The Indian landscape, which dominates the novel, puts into question the established values of Western religion. Forster's India has many inhabitants other than people, like fairies, plants, birds and stones. Interestingly, there are no interiors or exteriors in the novel, so everyone can know everyone else's secrets. In addition, Indian experiences can prove disturbing for the English characters and they also awaken desire, making Adela realise that she does not hate Ronny.
