Q4. Read the following passage to answer the questions carefully.
Subal Chandra’s son was called Sushil Chrandra, but people always aren’t
true to their names. Which is why perhaps Subal (whose name means ‘the
strong one’) was actually quite weak and Sushil, which means gentle and
quite, was just the opposite.
The son Sushil drove the entire neighbourhood mad with his antics,
and this made his father itch to punish him. Unfortunately, the father
suffered from rheumatism while the son could run like a deer. So, most of
the intended to slaps missed their target. But on the rare occasions when his
father managed t catch him. Sushil really had a bad time. The day on which
this story begins was a Saturday and school would be over by two in the
afternoon. But Sushil was in no mood to go to school for a number of
reasons. To start with, it was the day of the dreaded geography test.
Secondly, there was to be a display of fireworks at the Bose’s that evening
which everyone was looking forward to. Sushil, too, longed to spend the day
watching every bit of the preparation.
After thinking long and hard about it Sushil jumped into bed just
when it was time to go to school. Sushil looked at him in surprise and asked
him, “Why are you still in bed? Aren’t you going to school”?
“I’ve a terrible stomach ache” said Sushil promptly, “I can’t go to
school today”. Subal saw through the trick at once and said to himself,
“Very well I know how to teach him a lesson”
