Question 1: Which sentence in paragraph 1 shows clearly the way Avonlea responded to the Allans?

Question 2: What made Marilla invite Allans to tea? What made her take a lot of trouble preparing the meal?

Answer: Marilla wants to invite Mr and Mrs Allan home because she has heard that they had been everywhere else in the neighbourhood but hadn’t visited the Cuthberts’ home yet. Marilla took a lot of trouble to make great preparations because hosting the minister and his wife to tea was an important matter and Marilla did not want to be outdone by any of the other Avonlea housekeepers.

Question 3: Look at paras 2 and 3. Do you think Anne was frequently asking Marilla questions? Can you guess whether Marilla was pleased or bored by them?

Answer: Yes, Marilla must have been bored by them because when Anne tells her she asked her teacher a lot of questions, Marilla says ‘I believe you’.

Question 4: In para 11, what are the things that show Anne’s enthusiasm and effort?

Answer: Anne couldn’t sleep that night and got up early, at sunrise. She was determined to make her cake despite having caught a cold from playing in the spring the previous evening. She drew a long breath when she shut the oven door, showing how breathlessly she had been working on the cake and how anxious she was for it to turn out well.

Answer: The words in para 20 that show that Anne just adored Mrs Allan are – “Anne felt that Mrs Allan’s approving smile was almost too much happiness for this world.”
