(ii) Was he, in your opinion, right or wrong to ask this ?

(ii) He was wrong to ask this  because the pool was in the forest. It was not his personal property.

3: Between Ranji and the other boy, who is trying to start a quarrel? Givea reason for your Ans.

Ans: Between Ranji and the other boy, the other boy was trying to start a quarrel. When Ranji saw him, he did not say anything. It was the otherboy who asked Ranji to explain himself. Ranji was prepared to be friendly, but was taken aback by the boy’s hostile tone. He even asked the boy to come and swim with him. However, the boy said that it was his pool, and started a fight by calling himself a ‘warrior’.

4:”Then we will have to continue the fight,” said the other.

(i) What made him say that?

(ii) Did the fight continue? If not, why not?

Ans: (i) When even after a lot of fighting Ranji refused to leave the pool, the other boy said that they would have to continue their fight.

(ii) No, the fight did not continue. After they decided to continue the fight, neither of them took the initiative. Then, the other boy said that they would continue the fight the next day if Ranji dared to come back to the pool.

3:Ranji is not at all eager for a second fight. Why does he go back to the pool, then?

4:Who was the better swimmer? How do you know it?

Ans: Ranji was the better swimmer. When the other boy made fun of him by saying that he would not be able to swim across the pool, Ranji dived straight into the water and surfaced at the other end in a flash. The boy was amazed at how well Ranji had dived, and later, at how he had swum underwater. He said that he did not know how to dive or swim underwater, and asked Ranji to teach him both.

7: Ranji’s superiority over the other boy is obvious in the following:

physical strength, good diving, his being a fighter, sense of humour, swimming under water, making a good point, willingness to help.

Underline the relevant phrases.

Ans: good diving, swimming under water and willingness to help.

8:What, according to you, makes the two adversaries turn into good friends in a matter of minutes? Explain it as you have understood it.

Ans: The two adversaries admired certain skills in each other, which they themselves lacked. When the other boy saw how well Ranji dived and swam underwater, he forgot about the fight and asked him to teach him these skills. Ranji’s willingness to help the other boy made their friendship possible. Noticing Ranji’s thin body, the other boy promised him that he would turn him into a wrestler like himself. As a result, in a matter of minutes, the adversaries turned into good friends.
