Question 3: What happened when George and Harris started to pack the hampers?

Answer: When George and Harris started to pack the hampers, they broke a cup. Harris packed the strawberry jam on top of a tomato and squashed it, and they had to pick out the tomato with a tea spoon. Then George trod on the butter. So, it was chaotic.

Question 4: Why did the narrator try to make them nervous and irritated?

Answer: The narrator tried to make them nervous and irritated by sitting on the edge of the table and watching them. He was taking revenge because they had left the packing of the bag entirely to him and sat around doing nothing while he struggled with the packing. Each time he finished packing the bag they would ask him if he had packed some item or not and had made him reopen and repack several times.

Question 5: Describe the incident of the lost butter.

Answer: The incident of the lost butter was extremely humorous. The butter got stuck on George’s slipper and they got it off. Then they tried to put it in the kettle. It would not go in, and what was in would not come out. They finally scraped it out and put it down on a chair, and Harris sat on it and it stuck to him, and they went looking for it all over the room, many times. Finally, George saw the butter and chased Harris all over the room till he got it off and packed it in the tea pot.

Question 6: What role did Montmorency play in adding to the total chaos?

Answer: Montmorency added to the chaos by sitting down on things just when they had to be packed. He put his leg in to the jam, and he worried the teaspoons and he pretended that the lemons were rats and got into the hamper and killed three of them before Harris stopped him. If Montmorency could be a perfect nuisance, then he felt his day had not been wasted.

Question 7: Discuss and describe what kind of characters the narrator and his friends are.

Answer: The narrator and his friends are awkward and clumsy, and generally mess everything. They are extremely illogical and silly because they put the butter in the kettle and packed it. They didn’t think about the time when they would want to have a cup of tea and need the kettle and find it is full of butter. The narrator is a particularly forgetful character who keeps forgetting the things he has packed and has doubts whether he has packed everything or not. They are good-natured and friendly and like having fun.

Question 8: Do you think the passage is humorous? Give two examples to prove it.

Answer: Yes, the passage is humorous. It is extremely funny and very enjoyable. One example of comic humor is the way Harris sits on the butter and searches for it everywhere while it is sticking to the seat of his pants. One more example of humor is the way they packed the strawberry jam on top of a tomato and squashed it, and they had to pick out the tomato with the teaspoon. The whole passage is full of such funny incidents.
