He saw nothing, he had no knife or sharp instrument, the grating of the window was of iron and he had too often assured himself of its solidity. His furniture consisted of a bed, a chair, a table, a pail, and a jug. The bed had iron clamps, but they were screwed to the wall and it would have required a screwdriver to take them off.

Dantes had but one resource which was to break the jug and with one of the sharp fragments attack the wall. He left the jug fall on the floor and it broke in pieces. He concealed two or three of the sharpest fragments in his bed, leaving the rest on the floor. The breaking of the jug was too natural an accident to excite suspicion, and next morning gaoler went grumblingly to fetch another, without giving himself the trouble to remove the fragments. Dantes heard joyfully the key grate in the lock as guard departed.

[A]. cell door was shut
[B]. cell door was opened
[C]. storeroom was opened

Dantes was in a cell, so it was the cell door was shut. Am I right?

The gaoler didn't pick up the fragments, so he didn't open the cell, how would he close it. And he did go to fetch another jug from the storeroom. I guess this explains the answer.

It says the guard departed. So the cell door must be shut after the guard replaced the broken jug, not store room.

The word 'GAOLER' means jailer then how come the answer be D?
