Class X - Supplementary Reader- Footprints without Feet L10-The Book That Saved the Earth

READ AND FIND OUT

  • Why was the twentieth century called the ‘Era of the Book’?

    The twentieth century was called the 'Era of the Book' because it this century knowledge was transferred and stored through books. There were books about everything and any imaginable topic.
  • Who tried to invade the earth in the twenty-first century?

    Martians tried to invade the earth in the twenty-first century.
  • What guesses are made by Think–Tank about the books found on earth?He guesses that the books found on earth are actually sandwiches. He later adds that these might be communication sandwiches used by the earthlings for communication.

THINK ABOUT IT

  1. Noodle avoids offending Think-Tank but at the same time he corrects his mistakes. How does he manage to do that?

    Noodle avoids offending Think-Tank while correcting his mistakes by not correcting him directly. He always gives Think-Tank that he is just proving an extra information to his boss and master. The master is smart enough to improvise and use that information and correct himself.
  2. If you were in Noodle’s place, how would you handle Think-Tank’s mistakes?

    I would handle the Think-Tank's mistakes the same way as Noodle did because it is the best method to correct someone without offending him.
  3. Do you think books are being replaced by the electronic media? Can we do away with books altogether?

    Yes, I think that books are being replaced by electronic media. But it appears impossible to do away with books altogether in the near future.
  4. Why are books referred to as a man’s best companion?

    Books are referred to as a man's best companion because books can be relied on in every situation. These guide and provide knowledge and provide solace to those who feel lonely.
