He concluded that the man he had escorted to the gat was actually Evans Measures were taken to recapture Evans with the help of the bleeding McLeery, who was later sent off a hospital for treatment. However, soon it was exposed that this 'Bleeding McLeery' was the real Evans Finally, When the governor traced Evans and ordered him to be taken back to the prison with a prison officer in the official van, another conspiracy unfolded. Evans fled again, as the prison officer and the van were part of his back-up plan. His flawless plans left everyone perplexed and troubled.

But the little German the governor knew and the 'correction slip' did help them to track him down.

Question. Why did the Governor instruct Jackson to search McLeery?
Answer : The Governor asked Jackson to search McLeery, the invigilator, just in case he had brought something unwittingly which might prove to be a weapon that Evans could use and try to escape from prison.

Answer : In between intervals of Stephens’ peeping into the cell, Evans was changing into the Parson’s dress to look like McLeery. So, in order to conceal his efforts to keep them in place, Evans draped a blanket round his shoulder. Stephens was misled into believing that Evans was feeling cold.

Question. What were the precautions taken for the smooth conduct of the examination?
Answer : The governor was suspicious of the true intentions of Evans in wanting to take the examination. Fearing his fourth escape, the examination was ordered to be conducted inside the prison cell which was installed with a microphone, to keep a check on this intelligent prisoner. His cell was properly scrutinized by the prison staff who took away anything which could pose a threat in the smooth conduct of the examination. On the day of examination the prison staff was put on high alert and special care was promptly taken by locking all doors and gates. Stephens was ordered to keep an eye on the exam proceedings. Even the invigilator, a person was frisked thoroughly before the examination.

Question. Should criminals in the prison be given the opportunity of learning and education ?
Answer : No one should be denied the right to education. If the criminals in prison are provided with education and work skills, their life can turn towards a bright and crime free future.

Question. Do you agree that between crime and punishment it is mainly a battle of wits ?
Answer : In every battle the stronger side wins; and this strength could be physical or mental. However, after reading the story we can conclude that between crime and punishment, it is mainly a battle of wits. The side which outsmarts the other wins. It is not always that a criminal gets punished. In the given story, the well trained police officials were easily fooled by the clever Evans, who managed to escape from right under their nose.

Question. Do you think Evans statement, ‘I may surprise everybody,” has some special significance?
Answer : Evans seems to be telling his teacher that he may surprise everybody by doing well in the exam, but in reality it is a forewarning that he is going to jolt everybody by his master-minded perfect escape plan.

Question. Where did Evans go ?
Answer : After deceiving the police intelligently, Evans went to the hotel golden Lion located in Chipping Norton.

Question. Reflecting on the story, what did you feel about Evans' having the last laugh ?
Answer : Evans smartly devised and executed the plan of his escape. He managed to fool everyone till the end of the story. He left fake clues to misguide the officials chasing him. Even as the Governor heaved a sigh of relief after nabbing him in the golden Lion hotel, Evans was secretly cooking and executing another path of escape. The prison officer and the van used by the governor for transferring Evans back to the prison were forged. The governor was happy that ultimately he was above to track him down using his intelligence and knowledge of German. However, Evans had planned a step ahead. With his successful escape, Evans definitely had a well earned last laugh.

Question. When Stephens comes back to the cell he jumps to a conclusion and the whole machinery blindly goes by his assumption without even checking the identity of the injured 'McLeery'. Does this show how hasty conjectures can prevent one from the obvious? How is the criminal able to predict such negligence ?
Answer : On his return, Stephen saw McLerry bleeding profusely in the cell. Presuming the man he had escorted to the gate to be Evans and not McLeery, he raised an alarm. None of the official staff tried to verify whether that person was McLeery. As the bleeding McLeery offered to help the police to track Evans, nobody questioned how he knew the plan. Later when the governor nabbed Evans and sent him back to jail with the prison officers, he did not notice that this officer was unknown to him. It was soon unearthed that the officers were Evan's own men who helped him escape again. Thus, it was definite that the gullible officials made speculations which resulted to their negligence. On the contrary, a plotting criminal makes a foolproof plan taking care of the intricacies and did not make hasty assumptions. He had ready back-up plans. Also, a criminal's mind is observant enough to predict any possible negligence on the part of the officials. Evans too must have easily observed these during his stay in the prison, and planned accordingly.

Question. What kind of a person was Evans?
Answer : Evans was a 'Kleptomaniac' and he had broken jail thrice. He was a master planner and was very sociable. He could imitate anyone like famous comedian Mike Yarwood. In the words of the Governor, he was a pleasant sort of chap with no record of violence.

Question. While we condemn the crime, we are sympathetic to the criminal. Is this the reason why prison staff often develops a soft corner for those in custody ?
Answer : Crime' and criminals' are usually considered synonymous. However, our perception changes when we see a criminal suffering or serving his punishment. This is what happens with the prison staff. Seeing a criminal suffer in the prison, they unwittingly develop a soft corner for him in their hearts They start appreciating their mental capabilities rather than just remembering their crime. In the story, Jackson lets Evens keep his hat after knowing that he considered it to be his lucky charm. Evans knew of the emotional side of Jackson and so hit it directly through his talk about 'lucky Charm', and managed to fool the stern and practical officer. Even the Governor could not help noticing his intelligence when he caught him in the hotel. Thus, he was not cruel or stern with Evans, and regrettably, look him leniently.

Question. What could the governor have done to securely bring back Evans to the prison when he caught him at the Golden Lion? Does that final act of foolishness really prove that 'he was just another good-for-a-giggle, gullible governor, that was all' ?
Answer : At the golden lion when the governor arrested Evans, he should have been extra cautions in sending him back to the jail. If he knew the whereabouts of Evans, he should have taken along more police officials. Also, considering the fact that Evans had successfully fooled them earlier, he should not have taken chances by sending him in a van with just a couple \of police officers whom, apparently, he did not know, As a results Evans easily escaped once again. Ideally, the Governor should have escorted Evans himself. Thus this final act of foolishness really proved that 'he was just another good-for-a-giggle, gullible gover-nor that was all'.

Question. In spite of strict vigilance, how did Evans’ friend manage to give the material for disguise in the cell?
Answer : Despite all vigilance, Evans’ friend disguised as McLeery, the invigilator, managed to smuggle the disguised material into the cell. He came wearing two parson’s dresses with black fronts and collars. Apart from it he also brought an extra pair of spectacles. All this was passed on to Evans when Stephens’ vigilant eyes were away from the peep-hole.

Question. Will the injured McLeery be able to help the prison officers track Evans ?
Answer : Injured McLeery, Show casing his knowledge of German, revealed the supposed plan of Evans through the superimposed question paper. He proposed to guide the officials to the superimposed question paper. He proposed to guide the officials to the whereabouts to evens. However, that was later revealed to be a part of the Evans plan to flee to safety, as it was Evans himself who was disguised as the injured McLeery's help to the officials was fake as it was just a part of Evan's escape plan.

Question. How did the Governor, Oxford Prison describe Evans to the Secretary Examination Board ?
                                                             OR
What impression of Evan’s did the Governor give to the Secretary of the Examination Board ?
                                                             OR
What opinion of Evans did the prison authorities convey to the secretary, Education Board?
Answer : The Governor gave quite a satisfactory report about Evans to the Secretary of the Board. It was stated that Evans had no record of violence and he was quite a ‘pleasant sort of chap’. Evans was one of the stars at the Christmas concert but he suffered from a weakness. He was a congenital kleptomaniac. On the other hand, he was good at imitations.

Question. Why did people doubt Evans’ sincerity towards taking the O’ level exam ? 
Answer : Evans was very keen to get some sort of academic qualification. Evans was notorious for jailbreaking, so extra precautions were taken by the Governor because he didn’t want to take any chances with him and it was decided that the exam would be conducted in Evans’ cell. 

Question. Which article in McLeery’s suitcase played perhaps the most significant role in Evans’ escape and how ?
Answer : Evan was a habitual jailbreaker, who outwitted everyone and in spite of all the precautions, escaped from the prison. From the very beginning, when the German teacher entered the prison to the last encounter with the Governor in the hotel, the latter outsmarted everybody. The question paper for the examination served to send a message to EvAnswer : McLerry drew the Governor’s attention to the photocopied sheet super imposed over the last sheet of the question paper. It contained a message for EvAnswer : He had been asked to follow the escape plan. The most important point in time, according to the message was three minutes before the end of the examination. The Governor was unable to decipher the next line of the German text. Then, he was asked to hit McLerry and not to overdo the Scott’s accent. The correction slips also played a crucial role. At first, they hadn’t been able to fix a hotel. The slips gave Evans the name of the hotel where he was to stay.

Long Answer Type Questions :

Question. Describe three tricks used by Evans to escape from the prison.
Answer : Evans, the habitual jailbreaker outwits everyone and in spite of all the precautions taken by the Governor he is able to escape from the prison. From the very beginning when the German teacher enters the prison to the last encounter between the Governor and Evans in the hotel, the latter outsmarts them at each stage and proves that they are no match for his crafty scheming. Evans carries out all his plans ‘right under their noses’, turning the tables on them, making the prison authorities appear as ‘good for nothing’ officers.
For example, he knew that Mr. Jackson who used a rough tone had some compassion in him. He granted Evans’ request to keep the filthy looking red and white bobble hat on his head
during the examination. The hat was actually to hide his recently cropped hair. Also he knew that prison officers will blindly go by assumption. He pretended to pose as ‘injured’ McLeery in the cell. No one checked the identity of ‘injured’ McLeery as it was assumed that Evans had hit McLeery and escaped.
In fact, Evans is actually, officially escorted out of jail by the prison official themselves. Finally at the hotel, when the Governor feels that he has been able to nab Evans, he dodges him and slips away.

Describe the precautions taken by the prison officers to prevent Evans from escaping ?
                                                                  OR
What precautions were taken by the prison authorities to ensure that the German exam was conducted smoothly and also under strict security ? 
Answer : Evans, the prisoner was famous as ‘‘Evans, the Breaker’’. So the prison officers were quite alert while conducting the O’ level exam and took all the precautions to prevent him from escaping. First of all, it was requested that the board should conduct the exam in the cell itself and the request was accepted. Two prison officers, Mr. Jackson and Mr. Stephens, were appointed to make all necessary arrangements. They took away his razor as well as nail-scissors so that he could not use them for any type of injuries to McLeery, the invigilator. The cell was searched for two hours and every objectionable thing was removed. Heavy security arrangements were made in the cell. Stephens was given the charge of staying there all the time to keep an eye on Evans and also to leave McLeery at the gate when the exam was over. The Governor was all the time in touch with the officers so as to thwart any untoward incident. Hence, it was a foolproof plan on the part of the prison officials. Even then, Evans had the last laugh and escaped from the prison.

Question. Attempt a character sketch of the Governor in the story, ‘Evans Tries an O-Level’ What was the only flaw in his handling of Evans ?
Answer : The Governor of the HM prison, Oxford, appears to be a kind-hearted fellow at the start as he arranges for an O-level exam for a prisoner notorious for his ability to escape. As he was quite skeptical of Evans, he made every arrangement to make sure that Evans had no means to escape.
He was also very proud and self-conscious. He did not want Evans to disgrace him by escaping from the prison. He had a sharp presence of mind, which was clear from the fact that he crosschecked every call that was made to the prison that day.
However, he got over-confident of his arrangements and gave Evans the opportunity to escape.
Also, he was a person who did not mind showering praise plan to him, he admired him.
At last, he proved to be just another gullible Governor when Evans tricked him again and successfully escaped. His overconfidence and selfpraise let him down.

Question. It was sheer negligence on the part of the prison staff that helped Evans to escape. Comment. 
                                                     OR
How did the negligence of the prison officers prove to be a boon for Evans ? 
                                                     OR
In spite of the precautions taken by the Governor, Evans was able to escape. How do you think he was able to do it ? 
Answer : In spite of all the precautions taken by the Governor and his staff, they failed to foil Evans’ bid to escape because of certain lapses on their part. First of all, they called a teacher
from the technical college to act as Evans’ German tutor, but never cared to check on him. Then, they engaged Reverend S. McLeery to invigilate but never cared to check on him when he came to discharge his duties. When Stephens raised an alarm, they blindly went by his assumption that Evans impersonating as McLeery had walked out of the prison after injuring McLeery. They did not even bother to check the identity of the injured McLeery. Then, McLeery gave them the slip and disappeared. Belatedly they discovered that it was Evans impersonating McLeery who had stayed in. Finally, following the clues, the Governor nabs Evans at the Golden Lion Hotel. Here again, he acted foolishly. He rang up the local police station and asked them to send a police van which successfully took Evans away right from under his nose as no security check of the van was done.

Question. What purpose did the question paper and the correction slip serve ? How did they help both the criminals and the Governor ?
Answer : The question paper serves to send a message to EvAnswer : McLeery draws the Governor’s attention to the photo-copied sheet superimposed over the last sheet of the question paper. It contains a message for EvAnswer : He has been asked to follow the plan. The most important point in time, according to the message is three minutes before the end of the examination. The Governor is unable to decipher the next line of the German text. Then, Evans has been asked not to hit McLeery too hard and not to overdo the Scots accent.
The correction slip plays a crucial role in the plan of Evans’ escape. It kills two birds with one stone. At first, they had not been able to fix up a hotel. The correction slip gives Evans the name of the hotel where he is to stay. Secondly, it gives them the opportunity to know the time when the examination started. 

Question. How was the ‘injured’ McLeery able to befool the prison officers ? 
Answer : All precautions had been taken for the smooth conduct of the O-level German examination. No one wanted to take chances with ‘Evans the Breaker’. He had already escaped from
prison three times. The Governor had to make an unusual request to the Board to conduct the examination in the cell itself. One of the persons from St. Mary Mag was to invigilate. The senior prison officer Jackson and prison officer Stephens left no stone unturned to make all the necessary arrangements. Evans’ razor and nail scissors were taken away as they could be used for cutting his throat or injuring McLeery. Jackson took two hours to search his cell and reported that nothing was hidden there. But Evans disturbed all his plAnswer : He managed to procure a false beard, a pair of spectacles, a dog collar and some sort of weapon in his cell through the false McLeery. Actually, he had managed to keep the real McLeery securely bound and gagged in his study at Board Street. He had been there since 8:15 am. This meant that McLeery never went to prison. Secondly, it was Evans who impersonated McLeery and stayed in the cell. Stephens made a hasty conclusion that the injured man in the chair was McLeery. The last act of folly on the part of the Governor was enough to let Evans slip out of his net. Thus, this was how the ‘injured’ McLeery was able to befool the prison officers and Evans was able to escape.

Extract Based Question :

"That's it. Chap called Evans, Started night classes in O-level German last September. Says he's dead keen to get some sort of academic qualification." "Is he any good?" "He was the only one in the class, so you can say he's had individual tuition all the time, really. Would have cost him a packet if he'd been outside." "Well, let's give him a chance, shall we?" "That's jolly kind of you. What exactly's the procedure now?" "Oh, don't worry about that. I'll be sending you all the forms and stuff. What's his name, you say? Evans?" "James Roderick Evans" It sounded rather grand. "Just one thing, Governor. He's not a violent sort of fellow, is he? I don't want to know his criminal record or anything like that, but - " "No. There's no record of violence. Quite a pleasant sort of chap, they tell me. Bit of a card, really. One of the stars at the Christmas concert. Imitations, you know the sort of thing: Mike Yarwood stuff. No, he's just a congenital kleptomaniac, that's all." The Governor was tempted to add something else, but he thought better of it. He'd look after that particular side of things himself. "Presumably," said the Secretary, "you can arrange a room where - " "No problem. He's in a cell on his own. If you've no objections, he can sit the exam in there." "That's fine." "And we could easily get one of the parsons from St. Mary Mags to invigilate, if that's - " "Fine, yes. They seem to have a lot of parsons there, don't they?
