 1.    “Ben Price acted rather strangely” – Narrate the act done by Ben Price. Why did the writer use the word ’strangely’?

Ans:   Ben Price was again the chief investigating officer for the second time burglaries, committed in several places. After a close inspection, Ben Price came to know that it was again Jimmy Valentine who was behind those notorious works of burglary. So in search of Jimmy, Ben Price went to the city of Elmore. Keeping a watch on Jimmy, Ben Price became convinced that Jimmy was leading an honest life. He even noticed that Valentine took risk of his career to save a little girl named Agatha.  All these incidents changed Ben Price’s mind and he did not want to arrest him anymore. So he pretended not to know Jimmy and went away from there.

The word ‘strangely’ synonymously means surprisingly or differently. After being convinced that Jimmy was now leading an honest and respectful life, Ben Price refused to arrest Valentine though he had identified him at the Elmore Bank. This was why the writer used the word strangely.

From this point in his life, things start changing and Jimmy becomes Ralph D. Spencer. In the city of Elmore Ralph not only becomes a successful and respectful businessman but also going to marry Mr. Adam’s daughter in a few days. But something else is in store for Jimmy as the detective, Ben Price has been looking for him. To save Agatha, a five-year-old little girl from Adams’s family, Ralph again becomes the old Jimmy Valentine. Thus the whole story revolves around the ups and downs of Jimmy’s life. Therefore the title of the story “Jimmy Valentine” is appropriate.
