Do you think Jack shared an affinity with Roger Skunk? Explain

Question: Do you think Jack shared an affinity with Roger Skunk? Explain. [CBSE Sample Paper 2016]

Answer: No, Jack did not share any affinity with Roger Skunk. Jo’s constant question and her non-acceptance of Jacks’ ending of the story appears to be a threat to his authority. He believes that adults know best! Jack feels threatened by Jo’s attitude and when he finds that she is restless after he has come downstairs, he uses the ultimate weapon of adult authority—does she want him to spank her, he asks. He is reminded of his own upbringing. He was told that Mother is always right. So, the message is clear—adults know best. He tries to enforce his views on her. He has the typical parental attitude and opinion that parents know what is best for their children and stifles her objections and amendments shown by his defending Skunk’s mother (and indirectly his own).
