Question 6: What was the one serious fault in Nat’s character?

Answer: A fault in Nat’s character was that he lied. It was a grave fault as lying is a bad habit. Lying is like cheating.

Question 7: Do you think Mr Bhaer did the right thing by making Nat strike him with a ruler? Discuss.

Answer: Mr Bhaer knew that Nat would not learn to stop lying because he knew that lying was a habit that Nat had developed and it would be hard for him to give it up easily. However, Mr Bhaer knew that if Nat was to punish him, he would feel guilty about hurting his teacher and he would stop lying. Though this may seem like an extreme method, it worked best with Nat.
