Question

Would you want the man in the story "To Build A Fire" to be your partner on an adventure? Explain what aspects of his character influenced your decision.

Solution

Verified

Although the man seems resourceful, he is too confident for somebody who isn't really used to the harsh conditions. He makes the mistake of lighting a fire underneath a spruce tree, he doesn't bring a partner and he seems unprepared for the cold.
