Evans Tries on O-level Evans Tries on O-level

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.
The story "Evans Tries An O-Level" tells us that the examination was to be held on June? Why do you think the Governor talks to the secretary of the Examinations Board in early March itself?
How do you account for the fact that Evans selected German only for his O-level examination?
What different queries does the Secretary of the Examinations Board make from the Governor before conducting the examination for Evans and why?
Why was Evans known as 'Evans the Break' by the prison officers?
Why do you think Evans does not become conversant with German in spite of having been taught for more than six months?
Do you think Evans' statement, "I may surprise everybody," has some special significance?
Who were the two visitors Evans received in the morning of the day of his examination?
Knowing fully well how sharp Evans is, shouldn't Jackson have told him to remove his 'bobble hat' in his presence?
How far do you think Jackson is justified in his apprehension that some day Evans might 'cut his bloody throat'?
What made Evans clip his hair short?
What makes Evans' comment that his 'bobble hat' is a 'kind 0' lucky charm' for him?
Which traits of Evans' character are exhibited from his understanding about Jackson that he had ‘a tiny core of compassion for him"?
Why do you think Jackson asks Evans to remove the 'pin-ups' from the cell?
Why do you think Jackson tells Evans, 'Nobody in his senses would take any chance with you'?
Escape from the Recreational Block would have been much easier. Why did Evans not try to escape from there?
Why did the Governor instruct Jackson to search McLerry?
McLerry had a small semi-inflated rubber ring. What explanation does McLerry give about it? What did it actually contain?
The Governor granted Evans' request to shift Stephens from the cell during the examination and it proved to be a big blunder. Do you agree? Support your answer.
Who do you think made a call regarding a correction in the question paper? What did it really want to convey?
What significance would you attach to the supposed phone call from the Magistrates' Court? Was it genuine or just a ploy of Evans' gang? What was the purpose of the call?
Why did Evans drape a blanket round his shoulders? What did Stephens think about it?
Three minutes before the examination was to be over at 11.22 a.m., there is a call for Stephens from the Governor. Is the call genuine? What is the underlying idea behind the call?
After having seen McLerry off, why did Stephens choose to have one last look at Evans? What did he see in the cell?
What did Evans (disguised as McLerry) tell the Governor when the latter offered to take him to the hospital? Why was the question paper shown to the Governor?
A photocopied sheet had been carefully and cleverly superimposed over the last (originally blank) page of the question paper. What was its real purpose?
Jackson is really a 'Moron' and careless enough to mistake a stranger's voice on phone to be the Governor's. Discuss.
Out of sheer frustration the Governor tells the police officer to take the wounded man with him because he's the only one 'who seems to know what's happening.' Don't you think by doing so he is behaving like a moron himself?
Who is Carter? What does the Governor want him to do and why?
By presuming that Evans had kept the "clerical paraphernalia" hidden in the cell, what obvious blunder is the Governor committing?
"Careless leaving that question paper behind". Was it really careless on the part of Evans to have left the question paper in the cell?
Is the Governor justified in considering Jackson as a stupid person?
In spite of strict vigilance, how did Evans' friend manage to give the material for disguise in the cell?
How did the Governor manage to reach Evans in the hotel?
When Evans enters the hotel room after having had a stroll, he finds the Governor sitting comfortably in the room. On seeing him he feels he 'has just caught a glimpse of the Gorgon.' Is his surprise genuine or feigned? Give reason in support of your answer.
Who do you think is the driver of the van who eventually takes Evans to freedom?
Evans was able to turn the table on his captors. How did he do?
Do you agree that the governor was just another good for giggle gullible governor? Give reasons.
