She did not move and seemed inwardly quiet. She had beautiful thick hair of golden colour. She looked as beautiful as the pictures in advertising leaflets or the Sunday papers. As she was afraid of the doctor, there was marked dislike in her eyes for the doctor. She was eating him up with her cold eyes.

Q: Why did the parents keep the sick child in the kitchen?

Q: How did the doctor succeed in examining her throat?

The doctor thought that the child was suffering from diphtheria. Her face was red and she was breathing rapidly. He wanted to confirm his guess by inspecting her throat.
