(3)       Significance of the revelation:     
            (i)         Jack is discovered to be Algernon’s brother
            (ii)        Jack and Gwendolen can now marry just as Cecily and Algernon can.
            (iii)       Miss Prism is shown as one with little or no sense of remorse - she fails to
