Hello, everyone! I've got a bit of a problem with the following sentence: "By the time the reservations had been sorted, it was nearly noon, and the waiting staff took their places around the dining room to await the first guests and make final checks of glassware, silverware, and placement." The problem is actually the last word: placement. The way I see it, it could mean two things: a seating plan for the dinner guests (it is possible because it takes place in a fancy restaurant where reservations are made three months in advance), or the way glassware and silverware were arranged on the tables. Any ideas? Thanks!
