What would you do, if something like this happens to you?

I would honestly tell the person that I have lost or misplaced their belongings. And I would gladly replace it at whatever cost to myself. This is not just the better way out of it, but it also avoids confusion like in the story.



What opinion do you form about Mathilde’s husband from her story?


SOLUTION

Monsieur Loisel, Mathilde's husband is a very supportive and loving husband. Not only does he listen to her requests and fulfill them even when he can't, but also stands by her in times of trouble. He doesn't blame her for long the necklace. When he could have easily avoided helping her, he waits by her side and works hard to pay back for the necklace. He is an ideal partner and Mathilde is lucky to have him.



Which events in the story (Part I and Part II) changed Mathilde’s life?


SOLUTION

This fantastic tragic story by the master of short stories, Guy de Maupassant authors a tale with a twist at the end showcasing human behavior and perceptions. Even by event, we see Mathilde's life-changing firstly her bad luck to born in a middle-class family. Secondly, her marriage to a clerk, next to the invitation, the borrowing of a necklace from her friend, losing that necklace at the party and finally instead of honestly revealing the truth to her friend she along with her husband went ahead and purchased a replica of the necklace which in reality was a fake.
