Q. 1. Who is the Tiger King? Why does he get that name?

Ans. The Maharaja of Pratibandapuram is known as the Tiger King. He may be identified as His Highness Jamedar-General, Khiledar-Major, Sata Vyaghra Samhari, Maharajadhiraja, Visva Bhuvana Samrat, Sir Jilani Jung Jung Bahadur, M.A.D., A.C.T.C., or C.R.C.K. But this name is often shortened to the Tiger King. He had killed about hundred tigers. When he was born, the astrologers predicted that he would be killed by a tiger. The ten day baby prince spoke terrifying words. “Let tigers beware!” When he grew up he took up a vow to kill one hundred tigers and he started killing them. Thus he came to be known as the Tiger King.

Q. 2. How will the Maharaja prepare himself for the hundredth tiger which was supposed to be his fate?

Or

How did the dewan manage to arrange the hundredth tiger for the Maharaja?

Ans. The Maharaja had killed ninety-nine tigers from his state as well as his father-in-law’s state. Now there was no tiger left. Yet he had to kill one tiger more. The Maharaja ordered to face harsh consequences if the tiger was not found. The dewan and his wife dragged a tiger from the People’s Park in Madras. It was left where the Maharaja was hunting. Next day the same tiger wandered into the Maharaja’s presence. The Maharaja aimed at it and it fell in a crumpled heap.

Q. 3. What will the Maharaja do to find the required number of tigers to kill?

Ans. In his state of Pratibandapuram, the Maharaja had killed seventy tigers within ten years. The place became extinct with the tigers. But the Maharaja was much restless to kill the requisite number of tigers. In order to fulfil his desire, he married a royal daughter of a state having a large tiger population. Whenever the Maharaja visited his father-in-law, he would kill five or six tigers each time.

Q. 4. What did the Royal Infant grow up to be?

Or

In what way was the Prince Jung Jung Bahadur brought up?

Ans. The Crown Prince Jung Jung Bahadur was brought up with a silver spoon in his mouth. He drank milk of an English cow. An English Nurse was engaged to look after the baby. He was tutored by an English teacher and he watched English films. All his requirements were met like the crown prince of all the other states. When he came at the age of twenty, he became the Maharaja of his state.

Q. 5. What will now happen to the astrologer? Do you think the prophecy was indisputably disproved?

Ans. No harm will be done to the astrologer. Actually, the king could not kill the hundredth tiger, since it fainted in fear with the aim of the bullet. No, the prophecy was not indisputably disproved. Ironically the wooden tiger took its revenge on the Maharaja and this toy tiger became the cause of his death.
