Class 6 English Chapter 2 How the Dog Found Himself a New Master!


[Q] Why did the dog feel the need for a master?
[A] The dog in the story wanted a master because living alone was hard. He had to find food all the time and be afraid of stronger animals. He wanted to feel safe and have a stable life. The dog thought that having a strong master would give him a better life. He could depend on the master for protection and food.


[Q] Who did he first choose as his master? Why did he leave that master?

[Q] Who did he choose next?
[A] The dog left the wolf and chose the bear as his new master. They wanted to find cows to eat together. But when the cows got scared by something, the bear ran away. The dog discovered that a lion caused the fear, and lions were the strongest animals. So, the dog left the bear and decided to serve the lion instead. The dog believed that having the strongest master would bring him safety and protection.


[Q] Why did he serve the Lion for a long time?
[A] The dog stayed with the lion for a while because the lion was the strongest animal in the forest. The lion’s power kept the dog safe and protected. No other animal would harm or bother the dog while he was under the lion’s care. It was a good and secure life for the dog because he had found a master who was considered the strongest and most powerful in the animal kingdom.


[Q] Who did he finally choose as his master and why?
