GOING UP Mary lived on the 16 th floor of a tower block. Every weekday she took the lift to the ground floor and caught the bus. However, on her return she almost al- ways got the lift to the 5th floor only, and then walked up to the 16 th floor. Mary doesn't know anyone on the 5th floor and there is nothing there that she needs use of. Explain, please!
