1. In "The Piece of String," why does Master Maladain tell the mayor that Master Hauchecorne took the pocketbook?  

He believes Master Hauchecorne took the pocketbook.

       He wants to win the villagers' trust.

       He has a grudge against Master Hauchecorne.

       He hopes that accusing Master Hauchecorne will cause the real thief to come forward.


2. What is ironic about the plot of Guy de Maupassant’s "The Piece of String"? (Points : 3)
       The mayor, a foolish person, unintentionally makes an extremely wise decision.
       
           Master Maladain, a kind man, accidentally harms another character greatly.
      
 Master Hauchecorne, a deceitful man, collapses when he cannot convince people he is telling the truth.
       
Master Maladain and Master Hauchecorne, once good friends, never reconcile their differences.

3. How is "The Lady or the Tiger?" different from almost all other stories?       (Points : 3)
       The author uses a first-person, second-person, and third-person narrator.

       The author does not give a resolution to the main conflict.

       There is no theme.

       There is only one main character.
