In Chapter, Nick, the person who is narrating the story is able to meet Gatsby for the first time. He is invited to one of his lavish weekend parties in his mansion.
The weekend parties are infamous for being lavish and opulent events. A catering company is hired every weekend to provide seemingly unlimited food and alcohol (during the time when alcohol was banned in the US)
Gatsby himself is shown as a confident man who is eat ease with the busy parties. He doesn't know most people there but also does not mind their presence.
There are also a high number of English citizens at his parties, who are mostly looking to make connections among the rich and famous in United States.
It takes more than 2 Chapters to eventually build up to the first image of 'Great' Gatsby but his presence is an anticlimax as we observe a rich and powerful man who is also very down to earth.
In the chapter, Nick also starts dating a woman who he first meets at the party.

You basically have the option to do the exam whichever way you are most comfortable. If you wish to write in a question/answer format, listing the questions first, then your answers, you can. But i dont think theres a penalty for simply listing the answers either.
