Q. No. 1 of The Squirrel - Working with the Poem

Listen NCERT Audio Books - Kitabein Ab Bolengi


Why does the poet say the squirrel “wore a question mark for tail”? Draw a squirrel, or find a picture of a squirrel sitting on the ground. How would you describe its tail?

The squirrel’s tail appears upturned in the form of a question mark. Hence, the poet says the squirrel “wore a question mark for tail”.

(Note: A sample drawing of a squirrel is shown)
