Reading With Insight
Question 1.

Reflecting on the story, what did you feel about Evans’ having the last laugh?


Answer:

It was the Evan who has the last laugh. From the story, it clearly depicts that how criminals are one step ahead of jail authorities. Evan smartly devised and executed the plan of escape after all providing the strict precautions for the smooth conduct of the Examination. He managed to fool everyone till the end of the story. Evan made all arrangements for to get escape by just sitting in a prison. In fact, his friends bind and Mc leery helped him in escaping by fooling the prison governor. They arranged the car where Evan can change his clothes and makeup. With his successful attempt of escape made Evan laugh.



Question 2.

When Stephens comes back to the cell he jumps to a conclusion and the whole machinery blindly goes by his assumption without even checking the identity of the injured ‘McLeery’. Does this show how hasty conjectures can prevent one from seeing the obvious? How is the criminal able to predict such negligence?


Answer:

Evans was a smart and perceptive criminal. He successfully analyses the weaknesses of the jail officers successfully. Stephen was a new recruit to the prison set up. When he saw the injured Mcleery in the cell he was so overwhelmed that he did not even check who he really was and neither did anyone else. It did not occur to anyone to question how there could there be two persons – one in the cell and the other who had been escorted out by Stephens. It was for this very reason that friends of Evans, who, posing as the Governor on the phone, have directed Stephens that he himself should escort the person out when the exam is finished. The Governor and his officers, in effect actually lead Evans out of the prison. The question paper is left behind to mislead the Governor. This shows that Evans the criminal had enough time to study the behavior patterns of the jail officers and plan their strategy well.



Question 3.

What could the Governor have done to securely bring back Evans to prison when he caught him at the Golden Lion? Does that final act of foolishness really prove that “he was just another good-for-a-giggle, gullible governor, that was all”?


Answer:

The government took all the precautions to make sure that Evan should not even have a chance for escape. He even tracked and arrested him at the Golden Lion after his amazing escape from the prison. But his overconfidence once again proved that he was no match for the clever and crafty Evans. The Governor after finding the clues from the question paper tracked Evans at the Golden Lion. When Evans entered the room he was shocked to see the Governor. Evans offered no movement and was arrested. The gullible Governor gloated over his success and said goodbye to him. Evans was handcuffed and made to sit in the police van. The Governor did not take care to check the identity of the driver, the van, and the officer. A little more vigilance could have averted the escape of the criminal. If the Governor had accompanied Evans to the prison cell with full police arrangements the criminal would not have escaped. This act of negligence proved that he was “just another good-for-a-giggle gullible governor.



Question 4.

While we condemn the crime, we are sympathetic to the criminal. Is this the reason why prison staff often develop a soft corner for those in custody?


Answer:

Our perception changes when we see a criminal suffering or serving his punishment. This is what happens with the prison staff. Noticing a criminal suffer in the prison, they unintentionally develop a soft corner for him in their hearts. They gaze at him as a human being and not as an illegitimate person. They start observing and appreciating their mental capabilities rather than just remembering their criminality. In the story, Jackson lets Evans keep his hat after knowing that he considered it to be his lucky charm. Evans knew of the emotional side of Jackson and so hit it directly through his talk about “lucky charm”, and managed to fool the stern and practical officer. Even the Governor could not help noticing his brainpower when he caught him in the hotel. Thus, he was not bitter or stern with Evans, and regrettably, carry off with him leniently.



Question 5.

Do you agree that between crime and punishment it is mainly a battle of wits?


Answer:

In every battle the stronger side wins, and this potential could be physical or mental. However, after understanding the story we can conclude that between crime and punishment, it is mainly a battle of wits. The side which outsmarts the other wins. It is not always that a criminal gets punished. In the given story, although well trained, the police officials were easily fooled by the clever Evans, who managed to escape from right under their nose.
