What is 'naturally - in my analysis'?
'Well, you must have a civil authority you can trust. I thought perhaps that Mayor Orden might step down now and - well, if I were to take over his office, it and the military would work very nicely together.'
Lanser's eyes seemed to grow large and bright. He came close to Corell and he spoke sharply.'Have you mentioned this in your report?'
Corell said, 'well, yes, naturally - in my analysis'.
Does it mean:
1) based on the analysis of Corell, he would naturally become the Mayor after doing a big favor to Lanser
2) Corell mentioned his thought during analyzing in his report?Following sentences:
Lanser interrupted. 'Have you talked to any of the town people since we arrived - outside of the Mayor, that is ?'
"Well, no. You see, they are still a bit startled. They didn't expect it.' He chuckled. "No, sir, they certainly didn't expect it.'
What is 'it' in 'they didn't expect it'? Does it mean talking with Corell?
