Writer of the story - Roald Dahl
Question and answers

Question 1: Why did the speaker think that he may sound silly? How did he argue that he was not silly?
Answer:
In a desperate plan to go home the nine year old speaker might sound silly to make believe that that he had an attack of acute appendicitis.
He was miserably homesick and argued that he had an opportunity to witness his sister’s symptoms closely which made him confident enough to pretend being affected by it.

Question 2: How did the speaker and his sister react to the event of an operation inside their home?
Answer:
The speaker and his sister were very excited and lurked in the corridor, while the operation was going on. Fascinated by the events, they were listening from behind and trying to picturize the surgery and at the same time smelt the ether emanating through the crack under the door.

Question 3: Who are the adults in the story, how did the speaker as a child feel towards them? Why do you think he felt that way?
Answer:
The adult members in the story include the speakers Nanny, the School Matron and Dr. Dunbar.
The speaker, as a child admired Nanny. He believed her to be wiser than King Solomon because she had an instant answer to every query without any hesitation.
The authoritative Matron was stern, but the speaker was not frightened of her as he had strongly decided to convince her.
The child considered Dr. Dunbar as a great hero as he rescued him from his loneliness and helped him to come back home.

Question 4: Dr. Dunbar taught the speaker a lesson, but he also helped him. How did he do that?
Answer:
Dr. Dunbar an experienced and skilful person understood that the speaker was homesick and that he had lied and pretended as if suffering from appendicitis.
He encouraged the boy to face unpleasant situation with courage and patience. He was very kind to explain that “life is tough and the sooner he learned to cope with it, the better it would be for him”. He also trained the speaker in life-skills to handle the problems himself.
