Answer. postmaster was moved by lencho's faith in God.  so he decided to send money to Lencho. Moreover, the postmaster did not want to shake lencho's faith in God. so he signed the letter in the name of God. It was a good play to convey a message that God himself had written the letter.

Question-3 did lencho try to find out who had sent the money to him? Why not?

Answer. no Ranger did not try to find out this because he had great faith is God and he never suspected that it could be someone else other than God who would send him money. This faith in god was so strong that he believed that God had sent him the money.

Answer. lencho think that the post office people have taken the rest of money. It is the post office people only who are giving money. to lencho but on the the other hand lencho think they have stolen the money. he calls them crooks this is the element of irony in this situation.

Question-5 are there people like lencho in the real world? What kind of a person would you say he is question mark you may select appropriate words format box to answer the question.

Answer. I don't think there are people like lencho in the real world. Lencho is literate and yet he does not know how this letter will reach God without any address. he probably would be name and unquestioning kind of a person.

Question-6 there are two kinds of conflict in the story: between humans and nature, and between humans themselves, how are these conflicts illustrated.

Answer. the conflict between humans and nature is shown by the destruction of lencho crop by the hailstrom the crop was destroyed by health lencho started feeling sad.

          the story shows another conflict with me in humans themselves the postmaster helps lencho by sending the money that he could manage to collect.

even though he did a good did lencho blamed post office people for taking away some amount of money. This show that man does not have faith on another man.
