Q1. Read the passage below and answer the questions listed here
My grandmother’s house is like a chambered shell, it has many rooms, but it’s not a mansion. Its proportions are small and its design simple.

It is the place of our origin; the scene of our memories and dreams of island life.
I remember how, in my childhood, he sat on stilts; this was before it had a ground floor – it sat on its perch like a large blue bird – not some sort of flying bird, more like a nesting hen, but with outstretched wings. Grandfather had built it shortly after their marriage. He was a painter and house builder, a poet and a meditator by nature. As each of their eight children was born, new bedrooms were added. After a few years, the paint didn’t match exactly, nor the materials, so there was a timeline, like the rings of a tree, and mom could tell you the story of every room in her casa, and so family genealogy with her. His own room is the heart of the house. Although I have seen her recently – and the size of the woman and the room has shrunk, changed by the new perspective of my eyes, now able to look over counters and large beds – it is not not this image that I carry in my memory of mom’s casa. Instead, I see her bedroom as a queen’s room where a petite woman loomed large, a throne room with a massive four-poster bed at its center that was bigger than a child’s head.

And there was the monstrous cupboard that she locked with a little golden key that she didn’t hide. It was a test of his dominance over us; Although my cousins and I wanted more than anything to take a look inside this huge cabinet, we never reached this small key lying on his Bible on the dresser. It was also where she placed her earrings and rosary beads when she took them off at night. The word of God was his security system. This cabinet was where I imagined she kept jewelry, satin slippers, and elegant sequined silk dresses of heartbreaking finesse. I coveted these imaginary costumes. I had heard that Mama had been a great beauty in her youth, and the belle of many balls. My cousins had ideas about what she kept in that wooden chest: her secret might be money (Mama’s didn’t hand out money to strangers, banks were out of the question, so there were rumors that her mattress was stuffed with dollar bills, and that she buried coins in jars in her garden under rose bushes, or kept them in her closet untouched, there might be that gun legendary salvaged from the Spanish-American conflict on the island to fill locked chests with something wondrous.
