Ques 1: Some animals and birds got together to play a game. They wanted to make 2 teams. They decided that the captain of the first team will be the one with the longest name, i.e., the one with the most letters. The captain of the second team will be the one with the shortest name, i.e., the one with the fewest letters.

Ans: Find out the captains of the 2 teams:

• First team: Elephant
• Letter count: 8
• Second team: ox
• Letter count: 2

Ques 2: Who has a longer name? Discuss.

Ans:  We can compare the lengths of the names "Mahesh" and "Kartik."

• "Mahesh" has 6 letters.
• "Kartik" has 6 letters as well.

So, in this case, neither name is longer—they both contain the same number of letters. The statement "My name is longer" is not accurate since both names have equal length.
