    Stapelton gives this reason for the outburst at the romance between Sir Henry and his sister:

    • A.

      He did not want to lose his only companion

    • B.

      He did not like Sir Henry

    • C.

      She was his wife actually

    Correct Answer
    C. She was his wife actually
    Explanation
    The reason Stapleton gives for the outburst at the romance between Sir Henry and his sister in "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is:
    She was his wife actually
    Stapleton's anger and outburst are due to the fact that he is already married to Beryl Stapleton (also known as Laura Lyons), and his romantic involvement with Sir Henry Baskerville's sister, who is actually his wife, would expose his deception.

    • A.

      He was closer in distance

    • B.

      He smelled like Sir Henry

    • C.

      He had let the hound loose

    Correct Answer
    B. He smelled like Sir Henry
    Explanation
    The hound accidentally went after Seldon because he smelled like Sir Henry. This suggests that the hound was specifically targeting individuals who had a similar scent to Sir Henry. The scent of Sir Henry may have triggered the hound's instinct to attack, causing it to mistakenly go after Seldon instead.

      Laura's letter

    • B.

      Sir Charles's will

    • C.

      Hugo's portrait

    Correct Answer
    C. Hugo's portrait
    Explanation
    Hugo's portrait is the final clue that leads to the motive behind the crime because it potentially reveals a connection between Hugo and the crime. The portrait could provide insights into Hugo's relationship with the victim, Sir Charles, or any hidden motives he may have had. By examining the portrait closely, Holmes may be able to uncover crucial details or evidence that shed light on the motive behind the crime.

    This made the hound look fierce and supernatural:

    • A.

      Phosphorous

    • B.

      Neon

    • C.

      Potassium

    Correct Answer
    A. Phosphorous
    Explanation
    Phosphorous, when ignited, produces a bright and intense light that can create an eerie and otherworldly appearance. This could explain why it made the hound look fierce and supernatural. The glowing effect of phosphorous could have enhanced the hound's features and given it a more menacing and unnatural appearance.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The hound was kept

    • A.

      In a dungeon

    • B.

      The mire

    • C.

      In a house

    Correct Answer
    B. The mire
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the mire." The word "mire" refers to a wet and muddy area, typically found in marshes or swamps. This suggests that the hound was kept in a damp and muddy place, which is different from being kept in a dungeon or a house.

  • 8. 

    Stapelton, when pressed, says that the  creepy sound on the moor is from

    • A.

      Bitterns

    • B.

      A horse stuck in the mud

    • C.

      Seldon

    Correct Answer
    A. Bitterns
    Explanation
    Stapelton suggests that the creepy sound on the moor is from bitterns. Bitterns are a type of bird known for their distinctive booming call, which can be quite eerie. This explanation aligns with the fact that the sound is described as creepy. Additionally, bitterns are known to inhabit wetland areas, such as moors, so it is plausible that their calls could be heard in that environment.

    Holmes lived, while watching the case, in

    • A.

      Neolithic dwellings

    • B.

      A basement

    • C.

      The Grimpen Mire

    Correct Answer
    A. Neolithic dwellings
    Explanation
    Holmes lived in Neolithic dwellings while watching the case. Neolithic dwellings refer to the homes and settlements that were built during the Neolithic period, which was around 10,000 to 2,000 BC. This suggests that Holmes lived in ancient and primitive housing structures while he was involved in the case. The mention of Neolithic dwellings also adds a historical and archaeological context to the story, indicating that Holmes was immersed in a different time period while investigating the case.
