Q: Why did the doctor ask for a smooth-handled spoon?
He asked for a smooth-handled spoon because he needed it to use as a tongue depressor. The child was not co-operating with the doctor and the wooden depressor had already injured her mouth.
Q: How did the doctor finally succeed in examining Mathilda’s throat?
In quite an unreasonable way, he overpowered Mathilda’s neck and jaws. He forced the heavy silver spoon back her teeth. She opened her mouth. Her tonsils were badly infected.
Q: What was the condition of the tonsils of the sick girl?
Her throat was badly infected. Both tonsils were covered with membrane. From this, it was clear that she was suffering from diphtheria.
Q: Why did Mathilda struggle not to have her medical check up?
She feared that any inspection of her throat would give her pain. She thought that the doctor might hurt her. Like most of the children she was afraid of the treatment also. This is why she struggled very hard.
