Question 4 

  1. The new recruit had been with the      gang since the beginning of the summer holidays, and there were      possibilities about his brooding silence that all recognized. He never      wasted a word even to tell his name until that was required of him by the      rules. When he said “Trevor” it was a statement of fact, not as it would      have been with the others a statement of shame or defiance. Nor did anyone      laugh except Mike, who finding himself without support and meeting the      dark gaze of the newcomer opened his mouth and was quiet again. There was      every reason why T., as he was afterward referred to, should have been an      object of mockery—there was his name (and they substituted the initial      because otherwise they had no excuse not to laugh at it), the fact that      his father, a former architect and present clerk, had “come down in the      world” and that his mother considered herself better than the neighbors.      What but an odd quality of danger, of the unpredictable, established him      in the gang without any ignoble ceremony of initiation?
    (From “The Destructors” by Graham Greene)
