What kind of a person was Evans?

Evans was a congenital Kleptomaniac. He was serving a sentence in the prison. He was a good strategist and a planner as he had thrice managed to escape from the prison. He was a sociable person who kept intimate contacts and even the governor regarded him a good person. He had no record of ever having used violence as a recourse.

What's it about?

The Complete Class 12 English CBSE Core Course is a one-of-a-kind course for students of Class 12 English CBSE Core and includes Flamingo, Vistas, reading and writing. It is jam-packed with hundreds of animated videos , detailed and original questions and answers, hundreds of HOTS questions along with their answers, and thousands of practice questions. And it doesn’t just cover literature, we cover reading, writing, and grammar too, so you never lag behind.


This course is regularly updated, because these are fickle times we live in. This course will always stay up to date with the CBSE curriculum and is even now in sync with it.

What’s special about this course?

Animated Videos

  • The entire chapter is explained line-by-line with the help of whiteboard animations, characters, and videos, because if we want to hold your attention, it’s got to be more interesting than the book, and we promise you, it is. 
  • We’ve split the videos into bite-sized snippets so it’s easier for you to stay attentive for longer and understand and grasp the content explained better. 
  • The chapter has been brought to life by our founder, Meenu Sethi, who’s been educating for more than three decades, and has been applauded for her voice on YouTube (barring the creepy comments). She has a knack for explaining even the toughest of lines in the simplest of words, turning these chapter into bite-sized pieces of cake.

Practice Quizzes

  • Once you’ve watched and understood the chapter, you can then move on to these practice quizzes to test your understanding
  • The results are presented instantaneously, along with where you went wrong and what were the correct answer. 
  • Each lesson is accompanied by a practice quiz, so if you’ve just watched a 2-minute video, you can then jump on to the quiz and check if you’ve really understood the topic or did you space out. 
  • These quizzes have multiple choice questions, multiple answer questions, and fill in the blanks.

Summaries & Reading Materials

  • In a hurry? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 
  • If you just want to understand the concept or brush up on your syllabus, these reading materials will be your best friend. 
  • All of the materials have been curated and proof-read, so they are all high-quality, well explained pieces to supplement your learning journey.

Questions & Answers

  • These too have been split up for easy consumption, so after you’ve watched the video, attempted the quiz, and gone through the reading materials, you can go through these questions and answers to fully absorb the chapter.



Writing Templates

  • These are like plug-and-play hardware. 
  • All the topics in writing sections: formal and informal letters, applications, invitations can be hard to write from scratch every time, so we include easy-to-memorise templates crafted just for you.
