Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

     Which commandment was the first to be altered?

    • A.

      No animal shall wear clothes.

    • B.

      All animals are equal.

    • C.

      No animal shall sleep in a bed.

    • D.

      Whatever walks upon two legs is an enemy.

    Correct Answer
    C. No animal shall sleep in a bed.
    Explanation
    The first commandment to be altered is "No animal shall sleep in a bed." This can be inferred from the fact that the pigs, who eventually take control of the farm, start sleeping in beds. This alteration signifies the pigs' gradual shift towards adopting human behaviors and privileges, which goes against the principle of equality that was initially established in the commandments.

    Correct Answer
    Beasts of England
    Explanation
    "Beasts of England" is the official anthem of Animalism because it is a song that represents the principles and ideals of the animal revolution. In George Orwell's novel "Animal Farm," Animalism is a political philosophy created by the animals on the farm, which aims to overthrow human oppression and establish a society where all animals are equal.

     What is the sheep’s motto?

    Correct Answer
    Four legs good, two legs bad.
    Explanation
    The sheep's motto is "Four legs good, two legs bad." This phrase is a recurring chant in George Orwell's novel "Animal Farm." It is a simplified slogan that the sheep use to express their loyalty to the rebellion and their distrust of humans. The motto represents the sheep's unquestioning obedience to the principles of Animalism and their rejection of any form of human influence or control.

    Which commandment was the last to be altered?

    • A.

      No animal shall wear clothes.

    • B.

      All animals are equal.

    • C.

      No animal shall sleep in a bed.

    • D.

      Whatever walks upon two legs is an enemy.

    Correct Answer
    B. All animals are equal.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All animals are equal." This commandment was the last to be altered because it represents the ultimate betrayal of the original principles of Animalism. The pigs, who have taken control of the farm, change this commandment to "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." This alteration reflects the pigs' hypocrisy and their desire to establish a hierarchy where they have more privileges and power than the other animals. It highlights the corruption and manipulation of the pigs, ultimately leading to the downfall of the revolution's ideals.

It shows his dominance and desire to undermine Snowball's authority and credibility. By urinating on the plans, Napoleon is symbolically marking his territory and asserting his power over Snowball and the other animals. This act also serves to humiliate Snowball publicly, further solidifying Napoleon's control over the farm.

In the novel Animal Farm, Moses tells the animals about a paradise called Sugarcandy Mountain, where animals go after they die. This concept is used by the pigs, particularly Napoleon, to keep the animals hopeful and distracted from their current hardships. It serves as a form of manipulation and control, as the pigs use the promise of a better afterlife to maintain their power over the other animals.

     During the Great Purge, which took place between 1936 and 1938, Stalin had executed or sent to labor camps anyone who might possibly be labeled "anti-Soviet." The estimates of how many died in the purges ranges from about 500,000 up to 2 million. In Animal Farm, this is represented by

      The viewing of Squealer’s films.

    • B.

      The training of the puppies.

    • C.

      The betrayal of Boxer.

    • D.

      The slaughter of the hens.

    Correct Answer
    D. The slaughter of the hens.
    Explanation
    During the Great Purge, Stalin executed or imprisoned anyone who could be seen as "anti-Soviet." This mass killing and imprisonment is represented in Animal Farm by the slaughter of the hens. Just as the hens were killed for their perceived disloyalty to the pigs, so too were many innocent people killed during the Great Purge for their alleged opposition to the Soviet regime. This answer aligns with the historical context and symbolism in the novel.
