9th class-cbse english(NCERT BOOK-Moments)(long answers) chapter-9 (The Accidental Tourist)(Bill Bryson)

Answer following questions in about 100 words.

Q1) Why does the author never get his frequent flyer miles?
Ans1) The author had a dream. He always wanted to be the frequent flyer miles. But he could not succeed because of his forgetfulness and carelessness. He had issued a card indicating distance. But he never finds his card in time. This frustrated him many times. Once he locked his card in the bag and hen he tried to open the bag his finger stuck in it and it starting bleeding. All papers from the bag spread here and there. Other time when he planned to flight one lakh miles a year, he could accumulate only 212 air miles. When he was going to Australia he could not use his card as it has his name ‘W. Bryson’ and ticket was in the name of ‘B.Bryson’. Thus his dream remained unfulfilled.
