Question 1.
What are the games or human activities which use trees, or in which trees also “participate’?
We can play many games by using trees. We can swing swings on tree. One can hide behind a tree while playing the game of hide and seek. Our kites can get caught in the trées. There are a lot of human activities in which trees also participate. Human beings can make tree-houses in trees. We can have tea parties under the trees. Human beings can enjoy cool shade under the trees in summer. Trees also provide us with various kinds of fruits. Trees provide us clean air. We get timber from trees to build our houses and furniture etc. Wood is also used for burning.

Question 2.
(i) “Trees are to make no shade in winter.” What does this mean ?
(Contrast this line with the line immediately before it.)
As compared to summer season, sunshine in winter is less brighter. Moreover shade is not needed in winter. The people enjoy basking in the direct sunshine in winter.

(ii) “Trees are for apples to grow on, or pears.” Do you agree that one purpose of a tree is to have fruit on it ? Or do you think this line is humorous ?
One of the most important functions of the trees is to bear and provide us fruits. It is a fact. So, this line cannot be called humorous.
