Question 8

Comment on the relationship between Major Petkoff and Catherine.



The relationship between Major Petkoff and Catherine should be developed with the following points:

  • Paul and Catherine are introduced as husband and wife from the same social class.
  • The differences in their characters are properly managed
  • Petkoff understands his wife’s assertive nature and plays safe to save the family from disintegration.
  • Catherine’s ability to manage her husband in cases he may want to exert his manly authority
  • Major Petkoff is not in a hurry to oppose any position taken by his wife in the affairs of the family.

The question was not popular among the candidates and the few that attempted it performed poorly.
