Answer: 1-b, 2-e, 3-a, 4-c, 5-d

Question 3: Why did the third sadhu not look up and just raised his hands to show his respect to Jijabai?

Answer: The third sadhu was actually Shivaji and it would have been wrong for him to bless his mother. Further, if he looked up, she would have recognised his eyes. So, he waited to surprise his mother and to see if she would recognise him.

Question 4: How could Jijabai recognise her son in the garb of the third sadhu?

Answer: Jijabai recognised her son as soon as she touched his face.

Question 5: Why did Jijabai insist on the third sadhu to bless or curse her?

Answer: Jijabai insisted on the third sadhu blessing or cursing her because she could not live without her son.

Question 6: Jijabai was not only a loving mother but also a very good administrator. Do you agree with this statement? Justify your stand.

Answer: Yes, I agree that Jijabai was not only a loving mother but also a very good administrator. She is alert to the possibility of a hoax by Aurangzeb. She is quick in taking a decision to stop the unrest in the army by using her personal wealth to make payment of their dues.

Question 7: Who do you think is braver – Shivaji or Jijabai?

Answer: Both Jijabai and Shivaji are brave. Shivaji shows courage in facing Aurangzeb’s forces and his craftiness. Jijabai shows courage in not breaking down though she misses her son. Instead, she continues to handle the affairs of the kingdom for him in spite of several problems.

So, these were the Questions & Answers.
