Q2. Why did Montmorency shrink with fear by the name of “Cats”?
Ans. Once Montmorency had picked up a fight with a large black tom (a he cat), a very strong animal who just waited for Montmorency to come to it with a look that said, “Yes! you want me?” Montmorency retreated and allowed that cat to continue his walk.

Q3. What all things were things brought by the three friends before leaving Marlow?
Ans. Before leaving Marlow, they filled up their boat with vegetables weighing more than ten pounds.
Q4. Why did the writer think he might have typhoid?
Ans. The three friends had no water left in their jar. They wanted tea so they took water from the river, boiled it and prepared tea. All of them sat to drink it. But George and Harris paused with their cups halfway to their lips whereas the writer had emptied half his cup. When they saw a dog who eased up into the river water, the writer was worried whether he might have typhoid.
Q5. Why do you think Harris believed that his friends have brought him in trouble?
Ans. Harris had been sitting, without knowing it, on the very verge of a small gully. He asked George and Jim to give him a spoon to help the gravy with. Meanwhile he tumbled down into the gully. He blamed George and Jim for doing it deliberately and bringing him in trouble.
