Chapter 10 - The Book That Saved The Earth Exercise 63

Solution 1

The twentieth century was often called the Era of the Book  because in those days, there were books about everything, from  ant eaters to Zulus. Books taught people how to, and when to, and where to, and why to. They illustrated, educated, punctuated, and even decorated.

Solution 2

The Martians  tried to invade the earth in the twenty-first century.

Chapter 10 - The Book That Saved The Earth Exercise 65

Solution 1

Think Tank first said that since Earth creatures were always eating, the place in which Captain Omega and the others found themselves was undoubtedly a crude refreshment stand and the item in his hands was called a sandwich. The sandwich, according to him was the main staple of earth diet and consisted of two slices of what was called bread, and between them was some sort of filling. He ordered them to eat one.  When Sergeant Oop tried to eat it, he found it was not delicious, and that it was as dry as Martian dust. 

He next suggested that the books were actually communication sandwiches and he ordered them to listen to them.

When they could not hear anything, he told them that the books were not meant for ear communication, but for eye communication.

Chapter 10 - The Book That Saved The Earth Exercise 74

Solution 1

Noodle  manages to do that by first addressing Think-Tank in a respectable manner and when Think Tank is ready to listen , then politely corrects his mistakes.

He puts forward his own thoughts and ideas by saying that they are of no particular importance and in this way corrects Think Tank without offending him.

He always uses apologetic phrases like excuse me, I beg your pardon, forgive me etc while speaking to Think Tank.

He keeps addressing him as Great and Mighty Think-Tank, your Brilliance, your Cleverness etc to make him feel very important and knowledgeable.

Solution 2

Noodle has understood Think Tank very well and realises that he is a pompous, egoistic character and so handles him in a very diplomatic manner.

If I were in Noodle's place, I too would have handled Think-Tank's mistakes the same way as Noodle does. I would make him feel important yet manage to correct all his faults and unreasonable ideas.
