Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How does Tom propose to actually steal Jim from the hut in which Jim is held captive?

    • A.

      Dynamite the door

    • B.

      Steal the key from Nat

    • C.

      Slip Jim out the window

    • D.

      Dig under the wall of the hut

    Correct Answer
    D. Dig under the wall of the hut
    Explanation
    Tom proposes to steal Jim from the hut by digging under the wall. This means that he plans to create a tunnel or hole beneath the hut's wall to gain access to Jim and rescue him. This method avoids making noise or causing any suspicion, unlike dynamiting the door or stealing the key from Nat. Slipping Jim out the window could also be risky, as it may attract attention or be difficult to accomplish without being noticed. Digging under the wall seems to be the most covert and effective way to free Jim from captivity.

      The New Deal
