Answer the following question. (Refer to that part of the text whose number is given against the question. This applies to the comprehension questions throughout the book.)
Who do you think did Patrick’s homework — the little man, or Patrick himself? Give reasons for your answer. (9, 10)
Patrick himself did his homework. Since the elf did not know anything, Patrick stayed up at nights and worked hard. As a result of this, he got A’s in his work and his teachers were full of praise. Even his parents wondered as he kept his room clean and had developed a new attitude. Therefore, it was Patrick who did the homework, not the little man.
