Q.1: What did the physicians ask Saeeda’s mother to do to get well ? Did their advice help her ? If not, why ?
Ans: The physicians asked Saeeda’s mother to forbid normal food and gave her strict orders to remain perpetually confined to her small, dingy room with doors and windows fastened, deprived of sunshine and fresh air.

Ans: The specialist advised her to leave the dark hovel and occupy a larger room with doors and windows open. He told her to sit in the sun every morning from eight to nine.
Q.3: What did Saeeda tell the sunrays to do ?
Ans: Saeeda told the sunrays to come tomorrow with lots of warmth and brightness.
Q.4: Why were the sunrays keen to go down to the earth the next day ?
Ans: The sunrays were keen to go down to the earth because they had given word to Saeeda that they will come and cure her mother’s illness.
