NCERT English Class 10 Chapter 4 - From the Diary of Anne Frank Solution

Chapter 4 - From the Diary of Anne Frank

Writer of the story: Anne Frank
Thinking about the text:
Question 1: Was Anne right when she said that the world would not be interested in the musings of a thirteen-year-old girl?
Answer:
Anne was right when she said that the world would not be interested in the musings of a 13 year old girl because most of the people don’t want to give importance to a child’s perspective towards the world because they are too immature for the world. But, Anne Frank has become one of the most discussed of all the holocaust victims. Her ‘diary’ has been translated into many languages.

Question 2: There are some examples of diary or journal entries in the ‘Before You Read’ section. Compare these with what Anne writes in her diary. What language was the diary originally written in? In what way is Anne’s diary different?
Answer:
Anne’s diary was entirely different from most of the examples given before the text. It was somewhere closer to the memoir in which the name of Raj Kapoor has been mentioned. It was originally written in Dutch. It has informal tone which exudes the careful tone of a teenager.

Question 3: Why does Anne need to give a brief sketch about her family? Does she treat ‘Kitty’ as an insider or an outsider?
Answer:
Anne gave an introduction of her family in the ‘diary’ because it would be hard to make others realize that a 13 year old teenager could write about her loneliness. Kitty was an ‘outsider’ which was gifted to her by her parents on her 13th birthday. It so happened that Anne consider ed the diary as her best friend and treated it as an insider.

Question 4: How does Anne feel about her father, her grandmother, Mrs Kuperus and Mr Keesing? What do these tell you about her?
Answer:
Anne has fond memories of her father, grandmother, Mrs. Kuperus and Mr. Keesing, who have left indelible impressions on her mind and affected her life a lot. The way she represents all of them in her diary reveals that Anne was very good at understanding people and at developing interpersonal relations.

Question 5: What does Anne write in her first essay?
Answer:
Mr. Keesing had asked Anne to write an essay on the topic 'A Chatterbox' as a punishment. In the essay she accepted the drawbacks of being talkative, but urged that it was in her genes as her mother was also very talkative. It was difficult to give up the habit and it was also a student’s trait. Even Mr. Keesing laughed at the argument she had given.

Question 6: Anne says teachers are most unpredictable. Is Mr Keesing unpredictable? How?
Answer:
Anne took perfect example of Mr. Keesing as an unpredictable teacher because Mr. Keesing seemed to be different towards Anne’s behaviour. Earlier he laughed, but later he allowed Anne to talk in the class after reading the essays. He also started cracking jokes and being a little liberal in class.

Question 7: What do these statements tell you about Anne Frank as a person?
(i) We don’t seem to be able to get any closer, and that’s the problem. Maybe it’s my fault that we don’t confide in each other.
(ii) I don’t want to jot down the facts in this diary the way most people would, but I want the diary to be my friend.
(iii) Margot went to Holland in December, and I followed in February, when I was plunked down on the table as a birthday present for Margot.
(iv) If you ask me, there are so many dummies that about a quarter of the class should be kept back, but teachers are the most unpredictable creatures on earth.
(v) Anyone could ramble on and leave big spaces between the words, but the trick was to come up with convincing arguments to prove the necessity of talking.
Answer:

i) Anne is reserved
ii) She is self - confident and inventive
iii) She is humorous as well
iv) She has a sense of propriety and convincing  attitude
v) She is intelligent
