1. The characters in this story speak English. Do you think this is their language? What clues are there in the story about the language its characters must be speaking in?
Ans. I don’t think English is the language of the character in this story. Their language is French. The clues in the story are the names of the character which are all French. The use of ‘Mme’ before loisel or forestier also show that they are French short forms used for madam or Mrs.
2. Honesty is the best policy.
Ans. There is no doubt that honesty is the best policy. If you are sincere, honest or truthful you are not trapped in the web of lies. The berden of telling lie or concealing the reality is always on your mind and your peace is lost.
3. We should be content with what life gives us.
Ans. I don’t fully agree with the above statement. I believe that one of that one should not be greedy neither one should fell depressed or sad to think that other are more lucky and better than you. God also helps them who help themselves. So instead of envying others or feeling depressed for our lot, we should put all effort to improve it.
