Question 5: How did the assistant demonstrate the parrot’s skill?
Answer: The assistant demonstrated the parrot’s skill by placing an old chair in the middle of the shop, letting the parrot out of its cage, and saying in a loud voice, ‘Parrot! Karate chair!’
Question 6: How did Sarah test the parrot’s ability?
Answer: Sarah tested the parrot’s ability by allowing the parrot to practise its skills on her old boxes, crockery, and other useless items.
Question 7: Why did Babar and Adil remain silent throughout the story?
Answer: Babar and Adil remained silent throughout the story because they found it all too incredible.
Question 8: How did the parrot come to attack Sameer?
Answer: When Sameer returned home, he asked his wife about the parrot. When he heard it was a ‘karate parrot’ he expressed his disbelief by saying, ‘Parrot! Karate? My foot!’ The parrot immediately attacked his foot.
Question 9: What was Sameer’s view about keeping pets?
Answer: Sameer’s wife had to beg him to allow her to keep a dog or a cat as a pet, and Sameer did not get her one. This shows he was not too keen on keeping a pet. He thought a flat was too small for a pet, and it would be unfair to keep one there.
