    Explanation
    The office closes at "noon" for lunch, which means that it closes at 12pm. "Noon" refers to the time of day when the sun is at its highest point in the sky, which is typically around 12pm. Therefore, it is the correct answer in this context.

    The correct answer is "evening" because the sentence states that he could still see well in the light, implying that there was still some light present. Evening is the time between day and night when the sun is setting and there is still enough light to see clearly. Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that he could see well in the evening light.
