This is the test that we had to do on «Dumb Martian»:
2. In the story, they are described by saying that the shape of their faces make them look dumb and that they act as if they weren’t very smart. But actually, before the human race arrived in Mars, they used to be very clever. However, at one point they stopped bothering to think and when their planet was dying, they didn’t mind dying with it.
7. In my opinion, the message of relevance to the present is that we must not judge other people by the way they look or by what other people tell us about them. Because in the story, Duncan thinks that Lellie is just a useless and dumb Martian but in the end, with Alan’s help, she succeeds at getting rid of Duncan.
