He was groaning and looked quite weak. The Tsar became aware of the man’s stomach wound at that point. The Tsar washed it right away. He covered the wound with a towel from the hermit and his handkerchief. However, the blood kept flowing. Warm blood seeped into the bandage. They cleaned and dressed the wound once more.

They carried the injured guy to the hermit’s hut and placed him on the hermit’s bed. He fell asleep right away, regaining his life.

Answer: In Leo Tolstoy’s short story “Three Questions,” a specific Tsar had difficulty finding the correct answers to three questions. So he welcomed a lot of academics to his royal court. Each group provided a response. But each individual responded differently. Therefore, the Tsar was unimpressed by their responses. Finally, he made the decision to visit a hermit who lived in the woods and get all the answers.
The hermit first argues that since men have no control over the past or the future, the most crucial period is “now” or the present.
Second, since it is impossible to predict whether a guy would interact with anyone else in the future, the most crucial person is the one with whom he is currently in contact.
Thirdly, helping others is the most vital endeavour because that is the only reason a man is born.

With his walk and efforts, the Tsar was worn out. Due to his exhaustion, he had a restful sleep.
5. What happened to the man with the beard? How did he get saved? What ultimately did he do?
Answer: The hermit observed a bearded guy come sprinting out of the wood when the Tsar finally asked him to respond to his three questions. He had an injury to his abdomen. When he emerged from an ambush to attack the Tsar, he was wounded by the Tsar’s bodyguard. His brother had been killed by the Tsar and his possessions taken.
