Read the text and choose the correct alternative to complete the following statements.

Life is made of incredible coincidences. We don't always pay attention to what is happening around us but if we did, we would realise how things can be surprisingly connected. Take my case. Some years ago I decided to go on an expensive holiday with my best friend. We had saved money, we hadn't been on holiday the summer before and so we wanted to go to an exotic destination like the Seychelles or the Maldives. The travel agent advised us to go to the Maldives and pointed out one specific island which seemed extraordinary. We were very excited and decided that we could afford the holiday. Unfortunately, that destination was fully booked on the dates when we could take our holiday, so we were given an alternative which we agreed on. It looked pretty interesting too, but I must admit we were both a bit disappointed. Well, we shouldn't have been, especially Mary because there she met the love of her life. Yes, she fell in love with a young man from the USA who was on holiday on the island for a week, just like us. They married a couple of years later and they have been very happy together ever since. If we had decided for the Seychelles, instead of the Maldives, or if there had been some availability on the first island we chose as our destination, they would never have met and they would never have married. Was it fate? Were they destined to meet anyway?

1. The writer and her friend wanted to have an expensive holiday ________.

2. They couldn't go to their first destination place because ________.

3. If they hadn't decided to go to Maldives, ________.

4. If the young man hadn't been on the island on holiday during the same week as them, ________.

5. The writer seems to suggest that even if they hadn't met in Maldives, ________.
