CBSE English sample paper class-XII ques-01- TEACHOO.png

How does the following, impact the reader, even though they know Marvin is just an android?

"I've been waiting for someone to talk to me for over two million years," said Marvin.

Answer in about 40 words.

Answer:

The sentence makes the reader feel sympathy for Marvin, even though he is an android. It shows how lonely and neglected he is, and how he craves human interaction.

It also emphasizes the theme of the alienation and lack of communication between beings in the vastness of space. This creates a sense of sympathy towards Marvin and also raises questions about the meaning and value of existence , regardless of whether one is organic or synthetic.

Step-by-Step explanation by Teachoo:

The sentence is "I've been waiting for someone to talk to me for over two million years," said Marvin. It is from the text, which is a science fiction comedy novel.😂

  • The meaning of the sentence is that Marvin has been alone and ignored for a very long time, and he wants to have a conversation with someone. He says this to Arthur, who is the first person to talk to him in ages.😢
  • The context of the sentence is that Marvin is an android, which is a robot that looks like a human. He is supposed to be emotionless and obedient, but he has a very pessimistic and depressed personality. He often complains about his existence and how nobody likes him.😒
  • The impact of the sentence on the reader is that it makes them feel sympathy for Marvin, even though he is an android. Sympathy is a feeling of pity or sorrow for someone else's misfortune.😥

Therefore, the sentence makes the reader feel sympathy for Marvin , even though he is an android. It shows how lonely and neglected he is, and how he craves human interaction.👏
