Part - C

III. Answer the following questions in three or four lines.

1. Describe the appearance of Nicola and Jacopo.

One boy had worn Jersey and cut-off khaki pants. The other had a shortened army tunic gathered in loose folds about his skinny frame. They had tangled hair and dark earnest eyes.

They shined shoes, sold fruits, hawked newspapers, conducted tourists round the town, and ran errands.

3. How did the narrator help the boys on Sunday?

The author took the boys in his car to a tiny village called Poleta, set high upon a hill. He drove the car up to a large red-roofed villa. The boys asked the author to come thereafter for an hour and went inside.

  • Her eyes were soft and tender.

5. Were the boys saving money to go the States? How do you know?

The boys had the commitment to saving the life of their sister. So they were not saving money to go to the states.

Part - D

IV. Write in detail.

1. Justify the title of the story „Two Gentlemen of Verona‟.

In the story ‘Two Gentlemen of Verona’, the two orphan boys Jacopo and Nicola work immensely and exhaustively. They shine shoes, sell newspapers, run errands, and show tourists round the city. They take only figs and black tea as food. They save every penny for the medical treatment of their sister Lucia who is suffering from tuberculosis of the spine. The narrator himself admits that their willingness to work impressed him. They demonstrate an unusual devotion to their work.

The objective of their hard work and purpose behind their half-starved daily routine is not known to many in Verona. Anyone may polish shoes or hawk newspapers but it is the magnanimity of heart and nobleness of purpose that actually determines whether one is a real gentleman or a hypocrite. Hence the title ‘‘Two Gentlemen of Verona” is justified.

2. Write a letter to your relative or friend who is admitted in hospital for treatment of Corona. Advise him/her not to worry about the illness and be positive. Assure him/her of your psychological and financial help during the crisis.

My dear Friend,
I heard that you are admitted to the hospital for the treatment of jaundice. It is only a common disease, especially in summer days. So, you take rest and always think positive which will enable you to recover from it soon. If you need any financial help, please inform me at once, So that I will help and be with you.
Yours lovingly,
Address on the envelope
