2 Answer

  • In Nectar in a Sieve, Nathan can be described as a flat and static character. 
  • The correct answers are B and D.

    In "Nectar in a Sieve," Nathan is Rukmani's husband. Through the story he is depicted as a good husband, who adores his wife, and a man of the earth. He identifies with the sustaining and replenishing earth, and feels disappointed when his sons don't want to have a farmer's life.

    Nathan is a relatively uncomplicated character and does not suffer any major change throughout the story, which makes him a flat and static character.
