Hey sorry, we don't form questions in this forum but you can check this out,



Q1. Describe George and Harris at packing.

Q3. What made Montmorency think that his day was not wasted?

Q4. Why the friends were against paraffin stove in journey?

Q5. Give the synonyms -

Q1. They started with breaking a cup. First Harris packed the strawberry jam on top of a tomato and squashed it, and they had to pick out the tomato with a teaspoon then it was George’s turn, and he trod on the butter. They packed the pies at the bottom, and put heavy things on top, and smashed the pies in. They upset salt over everything. They tried to put it in the kettle. It wouldn’t go in, and what WAS in wouldn’t come out. This was the packing by George and Harris.

Q2. Cheese, like oil, makes too much of themelf. It wants the whole boat to itself. It goes through the hamper, and gives a cheesy flavour to everything else there. You can’t tell whether you are eating apple-pie or German sausage, or strawberries and cream. It all seems cheese. There is too much odour about cheese.J.recounts when his friend Tom once asked him to transport some cheese on a train journey. Everyone sitting in J.’s car left because the smell was too strong.

Q3. Montmorency was in it all, of course. Montmorency’s ambition in life, is to get in the way and be sworn at. If he can squirm in anywhere where he particularly is not wanted, and be a perfect nuisance, and make people mad, and have things thrown at his head, then he feels his day has not been wasted.

Q4. It had been like living in an oil-shop that week. The stove oozed. It was kept in the nose of the boat, and, from there, it oozed down to the rudder, impregnating the whole boat and it oozed over the river, and saturated the scenery and spoilt the atmosphere. "Sometimes a westerly oily wind blew, and at other times an easterly oily wind, and sometimes it blew a northerly oily wind, and maybe a southerly oily wind"; The winds came to us laden with the fragrance of paraffine oil.

Q5. (a) Impregnating

(b) Steeped
