Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How does Mrs. Partridge tell people's ages?

    • A.

      By looking closely at their faces.

    • B.

      By feeling their faces with her hands.

    • C.

      By listening to the timbre of their voices.

    • D.

      By looking closely at their hands.

    Correct Answer
    B. By feeling their faces with her hands.
    Explanation
    Mrs. Partridge tells people's ages by feeling their faces with her hands. This suggests that she relies on tactile sensations to determine the age of a person. By touching their faces, she may be able to detect wrinkles, sagging skin, or other physical characteristics that are associated with aging. This method implies that Mrs. Partridge has developed a skill or intuition for gauging age through touch.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Why does Mrs. Winterbottom sniffle and cry so much?

    • A.

      She is allergic to their dog.

    • B.

      She suspects that her husband wants a divorce.

    • C.

      She feels that she leads an insignificant life.

    • D.

      She is worried about Prudence.

    Correct Answer
    C. She feels that she leads an insignificant life.
    Explanation
    Mrs. Winterbottom sniffles and cries so much because she feels that she leads an insignificant life. This suggests that she may feel unimportant or undervalued in her daily existence, leading to feelings of sadness and despair. This explanation is supported by the fact that the other options (being allergic to their dog, suspecting her husband wants a divorce, and worrying about Prudence) do not directly address the reason for her constant sniffles and crying.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Why does Sal resent Margaret Cadaver?

    • A.

      Because Phoebe has told her that Mrs. Cadaver is a murderer.

    • B.

      Because Mrs. Cadaver is her English teacher's sister.

    • C.

      Because Mrs. Cadaver survived the crash that killed her mother.

    • D.

      Because she is afraid her father is falling in love with Mrs. Cadaver.

    Correct Answer
    D. Because she is afraid her father is falling in love with Mrs. Cadaver.
    Explanation
    Sal resents Margaret Cadaver because she is afraid that her father is developing romantic feelings for Mrs. Cadaver. This suggests that Sal may feel threatened by the potential loss of her father's attention and affection, leading to her resentment towards Margaret.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How do Phoebe and Sal react to the messages left on Phoebe's doorstep?

    • A.

      The messages confuse and frighten them at first, but later begin to make sense to them.

    • B.

      The girls think the messages are nonsense.

    • C.

      The girls think the messages are interesting and look forward to the next one.

    • D.

      They cannot understand the messages and want to ask their English teacher to explain them in class.

    Correct Answer
    A. The messages confuse and frighten them at first, but later begin to make sense to them.
    Explanation
    Phoebe and Sal initially feel confused and scared by the messages left on Phoebe's doorstep. However, as they continue to receive more messages, they start to understand their meaning and purpose. This suggests that the messages gradually become clearer and more meaningful to the girls, leading them to no longer feel frightened or confused by them.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Why does Phoebe initially think her mother was kidnapped?

    • A.

      The evidence is impossible to ignore.

    • B.

      She knows her mother is easy to trick.

    • C.

      Because she suspects her father is hiding something from her.

    • D.

      Because she cannot accept the possibility that her mother would leave her under normal circumstances.

    Correct Answer
    D. Because she cannot accept the possibility that her mother would leave her under normal circumstances.
    Explanation
    Phoebe initially thinks her mother was kidnapped because she cannot accept the possibility that her mother would leave her under normal circumstances. This suggests that Phoebe has a strong bond with her mother and finds it hard to believe that her mother would willingly abandon her. This explanation implies that Phoebe's love and attachment to her mother lead her to assume that something must be wrong if her mother is not with her.

    Correct Answer
    A. He reads Phoebe's journal entry and realizes she is writing about his sister.
    Explanation
    Mr. Birkway stops reading from the student's journals because he reads Phoebe's journal entry and realizes she is writing about his sister. This discovery likely creates a personal and emotional connection for Mr. Birkway, making him uncomfortable sharing such personal information with the class. It is possible that he wants to protect his sister's privacy and feels that continuing to read the journal entry would be inappropriate or intrusive.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Phoebe saw his picture on Sergeant Bickle's desk and thought he was cute.

    • B.

      A note on Phoebe's doorstep told them to.

    • C.

      They are convinced that he has something to do with Mrs. Winterbottom's disappearance.

    • D.

      Mr. Birkway suggested they do so.

    Correct Answer
    C. They are convinced that he has something to do with Mrs. Winterbottom's disappearance.
    Explanation
    Sal and Phoebe decide to visit the lunatic at his college because they are convinced that he has something to do with Mrs. Winterbottom's disappearance. This suggests that they believe the lunatic may have information or be involved in some way with the mysterious disappearance, leading them to seek him out for answers.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Sal and Phoebe visit the university in order to

    • A.

      Spy on Ben.

    • B.

      Confront the lunatic.

    • C.

      Find Mr. Winterbottom.

    • D.

      Do some research for Mr. Birkway.

    Correct Answer
    B. Confront the lunatic.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "confront the lunatic." This is because the question states that Sal and Phoebe visit the university, implying that they have a purpose or intention for going there. Out of the given options, "confront the lunatic" seems to be the most logical explanation for their visit, as it suggests that they are going to confront someone they believe to be a lunatic. The other options, such as spying on Ben or finding Mr. Winterbottom, do not align with the information provided in the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Before Sal reaches her destination, Gram dies from a

    • A.

      Stroke.

    • B.

      Snake bite.

    • C.

      Car accident.

    • D.

      Heart attack.

    Correct Answer
    A. Stroke.

    Sal's destination is not relevant to the cause of Gram's death. The question is asking for the cause of Gram's death, and the correct answer is stroke. A stroke occurs when there is a disruption of blood flow to the brain, leading to brain cell damage and potentially death. The other options (snake bite, car accident, heart attack) are not mentioned in the question and are therefore incorrect.

This suggests that the behavior and manners of Phoebe's parents resemble those of Sal's grandparents, the Pickfords. They both exhibit similar etiquette and social graces, indicating a similarity in their upbringing and values.

      He left Mrs. Cadaver.

    • C.

      He died.

    • D.

    Sal learns that Mrs. Cadaver's husband died, which changes her attitude towards Mrs. Cadaver.

This means that it is important to have empathy and understanding before passing judgment on others.

This behavior is common among many animal species, as it helps the puppies develop necessary skills and become self-sufficient. By pushing them away, Moody Blue is teaching them to explore their surroundings, find their own food, and interact with their environment. This is a natural process that allows the puppies to grow and become independent individuals.
