Some Important Questions 'The Case For the Defence'


1. “They named it the peckham murder”. Who are they? Why was it called the Peckham murder? Was it correct to call it the Peckham murder? Why?


Ans. They are the press reporters. It was called the Peckham murder in the headlines. It was not correct to call it the Peckham murder because it happened in Northwood Street.

2. His luck was badly out, In what way? Would anyone like to see a murderer being lucky? Why does the narrator say he might have committed the crime in the broad daylight?

Ans. Adams had his luck badly out, because he was seen by four people when he was seen by four people when he was running away from Mrs. Parker’s house after murdering her. He had been seen by four people near and in the surroundings of the scene of the crime. The narrator says, “he might have committed the crime in the broad daylight” to convey to us that he had not at all been placed in a safe position by choosing mid night time for the crime.


3. “She looked from one to the other and didn’t say a word”, What did the Defence Counsel ask her ? why was she unable to answer the question? She did answer the question. How did she do it?

Ans. The Defense Counsel asked her if she could swear that the man she saw, dropping the hammer in Mrs. Parker’s garden was the prisoner and not his twin brother standing at the back of the court. Since they were twins, and each a true copy of the other even dressed alike, she was unable to answer question. However she expressed her inability, shaking her head.
