Question:

In what ways does Think-Tank misinterpret innocent nursery rhymes as threats to the Martians? Can you think of42-15 any incidents where you misinterpreted a word or an action? How did you resolve the misunderstanding?

Answer:

The words like ‘shell’ and ‘silver’ make Think-Tank think that humans grew them in farms. Then, there is a line about ‘cow’ and ‘ ‘moon’. Also, the picture of Humpty-Dumpy and the rhyme of ‘great fall’ make Think-Tank think that humans were about to invade Mars. Yes, I had a similar misunderstanding with a friend. But, I was fortunate as I got to know the actual truth just in time. I did not believe what I had heard earlier.
