The Third Level Important Questions CBSE Class 12 English 1. Answer each of the following questions in about 30-40 words: Question 1. What does the third level refer to? What is the significance of the third level? (2001; 2004, Delhi) Answer: The third level is a medium of escape through which man yearns to be away from life’s harsh realities. Modem life is devoid of peace and tranquility so man in his quest to seek solace escapes to a place where his aim is to seek the realization of his dreams and unfulfilled wishes of his subconscious mind. Question 2. What convinced Charley that he had reached the third level at Grand Central Station and not the second level? (2010 Delhi) Answer: The general layout of the third level was different from that of the second level. It had comparatively smaller rooms, fewer ticket windows and lesser train gates.

Central Station? (2013 Delhi) Answer: Charley says that the rooms on the third level were smaller than that of the second level. There were fewer ticket windows and train gates and the information booth in the centre was wood and old looking. There were open- flame gaslights and brass spittoons on the floor. Everyone at the station was dressed in nineteenth century dresses. Question 4. How did Charley make sure that he was not in the present time? (2002 Delhi) Answer: To make sure that he was not in the present time, Charley did a reality check. He looked at the newspapers which were on sale at a kiosk and found a copy of the newspaper ‘The World’, which carried the main story on President Cleveland. Then he confirmed from the Public Library files that the newspaper he had seen was dated 11th June, 1894. Question 5. How did Charley often get lost on the Grand Central Station? (2010 Delhi) Answer: The Grand Central Station was growing like a tree pushing out endless corridors, doorways and stairs like roots. It had intricate and tangled pathways. The network of passages was so complicated that instead of reaching his destination, one did tend to move up and down to look for entries and exits. So, Charley often got lost on this station.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
