Question 8

What role does Manolin play in Santiago’s domestic life?


Manolin is Santiago’s friend and only companion. He keeps Santiago alive, hopeful and humane.  He is always concerned about the Old man’s diet.

Manolin provides Santiago daily baits. He sees him off to sea and welcomes him back from the sea.  He discusses his interests – baseball, football, African and lions.  He is emotionally attached to the Old man, and loves him with passion.

Most of the Candidates attempted the question and their performance was fair.
