Review: Paragraph Development, Answer 1.1

Good work!

My secretary, incorrigibly English, says a true gentleman "knows instinctively when I prefer to light my own cigarette, never serves aces at me on the tennis court, and always removes his wristwatch." Among the few true gentlemen extant, she says, "Captain Horatio Hornblower, Bob Dylan and Pierre Elliott Trudeau come to mind. Richard Burton, Joe Namath and Front Page Tom don’t." (from Allan Fotheringham, "What is a Gentleman")
The answer detail is correct.
The author provides a series of characteristics of the true gentleman, followed by a list of details in the form of positive and negative examples.
