Answer as written by the student:
The correct answer is (b) They are strangers
Step-by-Step explanation of the answer:
To answer this question, we need to look at the clues in the extract that tell us the relationship between the narrator and Norbu.
- One clue is that the narrator met Norbu outside the pilgrims' cafe, which implies that they did not know each other before or that they had a brief encounter there.
- Another clue is that the narrator says that Norbu looked ready for anything, while he or she was feeling nervous. This suggests that they had different levels of confidence and preparation for the walk, and that they did not share much information or support with each other.
