Model answers to Slow English Learning Ex-5

Q1. What sort of terror the 50,000 inhabitants living in 500 square miles of Garhwal experience? (First and second para)

Ans: The leopard was just an animal. Unlike the police or the army, it had no power to make people of the area obey its orders or fear it. Yet, for the 50,000 population of Gharwal, the leopard meant bone-chilling fear. They never dared to come near it or challenge its authority. The leopard struck absolute terror in the minds of the people. Even the most oppressive British ruler could equal the leopard’s ability to create fear.

Q2. Describe the pace of life during hours of bright sunlight.  (3rd para, page 8)

Ans: During the day time, life went on normally in the area. Farmers, readers, students, cow herd boys, all went about their work with no anxiety or fear. Thus, the effect of the leopard was never felt.

Q3. How did life change with onset of evening?(4th para page 9)

Ans: As the sun began to set, it gradually became darker. The fear of the leopard walking abiut in the area began to enter the minds of people. So, they began to curb going out. Thus, life became slower.

Q4.. How were the night hours lived by the people? Describe their feelings. (5th para, page 9)

Ans: After it became dark, the fear of the leopard gripped the minds of people. They bolted themselves in their homes stopping all activities. Life came to a standstill.
