Their act of defiance challenges the Party's control over their personal lives and symbolizes their resistance to the totalitarian regime.

    Winston's greatest fear in George Orwell's novel "1984" is rats. This is evident throughout the story, particularly during his time in Room 101 where he is confronted with his worst fear. The fear of rats is symbolic of Winston's deepest fears and vulnerabilities, representing the power and control exerted by the Party. The presence of rats also serves as a metaphor for the constant surveillance and manipulation that Winston experiences, reinforcing the oppressive and dystopian nature of the society depicted in the novel.

In the totalitarian society depicted in the novel, vaporization refers to the act of eliminating individuals who are deemed to be a threat to the Party or who have committed thoughtcrime. It involves erasing all records of the person's existence and even removing their name from the Newspeak dictionary. Syme's intelligence and outspoken nature likely made him a target for vaporization, as the Party seeks to maintain complete control over its citizens and eliminate any potential dissent.

An "unperson" refers to someone who has been erased from existence by the government, their records destroyed, and any mention of them removed from history. This concept reflects the regime's power to control not only the present but also the past, as if the person never existed at all.

    C. O'Brien schedules a meeting with Winston
    Explanation
    At the beginning of Chapter 6, Part 2, Winston finally gets what he has been waiting for his whole life when O'Brien schedules a meeting with him. This is significant because Winston has been longing for someone to share his rebellious thoughts and feelings with, and he believes that O'Brien might be the one who can help him resist the Party's control. This meeting represents a glimmer of hope for Winston and the possibility of finding a kindred spirit in his fight against Big Brother.

      The Ministry of Truth

    Correct Answer
    C. O'Brien's apartment
    Explanation
    Winston, Julia, and O'Brien meet at O'Brien's apartment. This is where they engage in secret meetings and discussions regarding their rebellion against the Party. Meeting at O'Brien's apartment allows them to have a private and secure location away from the prying eyes of the Party and the telescreens. It is a place where they can freely express their thoughts and plan their actions without the fear of being caught.

    Correct Answer
    C. Turn off the telescreen

    At the beginning of their meeting, O'Brien shocks Winston by turning off the telescreen. This action is surprising because the telescreen is a constant surveillance tool used by the Party to monitor its citizens. By turning it off, O'Brien creates a sense of privacy and secrecy, suggesting that their meeting is going against the Party's strict rules and regulations. This act immediately establishes a sense of trust and rebellion between O'Brien and Winston, setting the stage for their clandestine interactions.

    • D.

      Cause the death of innocent people

    Correct Answer
    B. Commit murder
    Explanation
    Winston and Julia are not willing to commit murder for the Brotherhood. This suggests that they have a moral boundary when it comes to taking someone's life, even if it is for their cause. They may be willing to engage in other forms of resistance or activism, but drawing the line at murder shows their ethical stance and the limits of their commitment to the Brotherhood.

      Emmanuel Goldstein

    • C.

      Big Brother

    • D.

      O'Brien

    Correct Answer
    B. Emmanuel Goldstein
    Explanation
    In the book "1984" by George Orwell, O'Brien gives Winston a book written by Emmanuel Goldstein. Emmanuel Goldstein is a key character in the novel, known as the leader of the opposition group called "The Brotherhood." The book given to Winston, titled "The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism," is a forbidden text that exposes the Party's manipulative tactics and aims to incite rebellion against Big Brother. Therefore, Emmanuel Goldstein is the correct answer for the author of the book O'Brien gave to Winston.

    • C.

      In a bookcase

    • D.

      Under the floorboards

    Correct Answer
    A. Behind a picture on the wall
    Explanation
    The telescreen is hidden behind a picture on the wall in the room where Winston and Julia are staying. This suggests that the Party is constantly monitoring and surveilling its citizens, even in their private spaces. By disguising the telescreen as a harmless object, the Party ensures that individuals are always being watched and that any form of rebellion or independent thought can be quickly detected and suppressed. This further emphasizes the oppressive and totalitarian nature of the dystopian society depicted in the novel.

  • 26. 

    Oceania (the country Winston lives in) has always been at war with Eastasia.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Oceania, the country where Winston lives, has not always been at war with Eastasia. In George Orwell's novel "1984," the three superstates, including Oceania, are in a state of perpetual war, but the alliances and enemies change periodically. At different points in the story, Oceania is at war with either Eastasia or Eurasia, but never consistently with one of them. Therefore, the statement is incorrect.

    • D.

      Mr. Charrington

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Mr. Charrington ends up being a member of the thought police. This is revealed towards the end of the novel, when it is discovered that Mr. Charrington, who had been portrayed as an old man running an antique shop, is actually a member of the thought police. He had been spying on Winston and Julia throughout their affair, and ultimately betrays them by reporting their activities to the authorities. This twist highlights the pervasive surveillance and betrayal that exists in the dystopian society of the novel.
