Question: Write a paragraph each about Gerrard and the intruder to show what qualities they have. (You can use the words given above)
Ans: Gerrard: Gerrard was a smart, humourous and confident person. He did not loose his cool when he was in a life-threatening situation. When the intruder entered his house and took out his gun, he confronted him with courage and cool. He very cleverly cooked up a story, that was very humourous as far as the reader was concerned. Being a playwright, he used his wit and smartness at the right time and gave the intruder a “taste of his own medicine. Intruder: He was also very smart. To even make a plan like the one he had for his future, requires a lot of ‘intelligence’. He had done adequate research before deciding whose place he was going to take on the earth. He wears very flashy clothes, which in itself was adequate to frighten people. He has a lot of wit and smartness as is evident from the confidence and nonchalance with which he behaves with Gerrard in his house.
