Question 1.
Fans don’t talk, but it is possible to imagine that they do. What is it, then, that sounds like the fan’s chatter ?
When the motor of the fan is not oiled, a peculiar sound is made by rotation of the blades. Poet calls it as the chatter of the fan. We too can imagine the sound created by a fan as their “talking” to us. We can interpret the sound in any way we like. It all depends on the working of our mind at that time.

(i) The chatter is electrical because…..
(ii) It is mysterious because …………….
(i) The chatter is electrical because the fan is electrically operated or works with the passage of electricity.
(ii) It is mysterious because the poet cannot exactly interpret what the sound is saying.

Question 3.
What do you think the talking fan was demanding ?
I think the talking fan was demanding oil. I think so because the poor fan must have been fed up of chattering continuously.

Question 4.
How does an electric fan manage to throw so much air when it is switched on?
When electric fan is switched on, it throws so much air. It is because the blades rotate very fast and strike against the passing air.

Question 5.
Is there a “talking fan’ in your house ? Create a dialogue between the fan and the mechanic.
Fan : At last you have come!
Mechanic : I came when I was called.
Fan : I think you were called late. I am fed up of producing meaningless noises. My prestige has also been lowered-because of my old-age ailments.
Mechanic : Don’t worry, I shall set you perfectly alright. You will feel young again.
Fan : Thanks a lot!
