Few Sample Question from this Chapter are given below:

Q. Franz thinks, "Will they make them sing in German, even the pigeons?" What could this mean?

Ans. During the Franco-Prussian war of 1870, when France was defeated and the districts of Alsace and Lorraine passed into the hands of the Prussians, orders came from Berlin that only German will be taught in schools. A new master would be coming to teach German. So it was the last lesson in French. Franz and all others present there felt sad and regretted putting off things at a later date. Just then the pigeons on the roof started cooing which made him think will the same orders come from animal kingdom too? Will they also have to forget their own language and learn German?

This points out to the mind set of man in general and conquerors specifically. Man has an intense desire to subjugate others. No wonder, he wants to enslave animals also. Just dominating and ruling over territory is not enough. Captors want to rule over minds as well. That's the reason why they impose their language on the oppressed. Linguistic chauvinism is the beginning of servitude.

In a nutshell, we can say that Franz's question is typical because it showcases the streak of authority and supremacy inherent in man. Given a chance, man might not even think twice before invading the sacred realm of God's!
