The Hack Driver Questions Answers



1. Who was Bill? How did he befool the lawyer? [H.S.L.C. 2015, 2018, 2020]

Answer: Bill was a hack driver in New Mullion. Actually, he was Oliver Lutkins himself. 
At the station, Bill introduced himself as Bill but not as Lutkins. If he wished he could do that in the very first instance. Then he made a lawyer hire his hack for two dollars an hour. Bill took to every possible location where Lutkin could possibly be. He moved him around the city for six hours and pocketed the fare but did not reveal his real identity. Bill did not allow the lawyer to enter the shop where Lutkins could be and asked them all by himself if they had seen Lutkins. Thus, he managed his locals to act as if they had not seen Lutkins and Lutkins might be at a different place. So, they had to follow him to a different location, and they missed him just by a few minutes. Actually, his confident behavior, support from his local friends, and his cleverness made the lawyer a fool. It was quite interesting that he was such a foolish lawyer that he took an unknown man into his confidence so easily and got victimized.
