Gulliver never gives the impression of any negativity in all his descriptions and is always very coherent and clear in giving every single detail. Do you agree? Prove it.

I do agree. Gulliver's narrative is always concise. Here is an example of Gulliver's description of the building of an engine in Lilliput. Note Gulliver's penchant for precise detail,
Five hundred carpenters and engineers were immediately set at work to prepare the greatest engine they had. It was a frame of wood raised three inches from the ground, about seven feet long, and four wide, moving upon twenty-two wheels. The shout I heard was upon the arrival of this engine, which, it seems, set out in four hours after my landing. It was brought parallel to me, as I lay. But the principal difficulty was to raise and place me in this vehicle. Eighty poles, each of one foot high, were erected for this purpose, and very strong cords, of the bigness of packthread, were fastened by hooks to many bandages, which the workmen had girt round my neck, my hands, my body, and my legs.
