*2 “what they do” = what they normally do pre pandemic (this may have changed),
*3 “governmental aid” = there may not be any or it may be obscure such as “UK eat out to help out scheme”.
*4 “successful” = this must be substantial and should not have any new information, (also it is your opinion, but you will need to evidence it, i.e. just answering “yes” or “no” is not an appropriate response but the answer may be negative).
