Why does people doubt Evans' sincerity towards taking the ‘O’ Level examination?
Evans was a very cunning, experienced intelligent and a careful run-away prisoner. He had escaped from the prison many times so he was called “Evans the Break”. Now he was preparing and appearing for ‘O’ Level examination in the jail premises. The prison authorities were very much troubled lest he should escape by this way. So people were doubtful about Evans' sincerity for taking the examination.
