A reading comprehension

Posted by Sphinx on December 27, 2003

Hi folks,
Please read this small passage and help me with these:
1.When Abe told Mr.Crawford what had happended to the book, he talked _B__

A.mockingly
B.humorously
C.unconcernedly

(Why choose B as answer here?)

2.Do you know what is a weather side?

3.Could you explain this sentence "How came you to forget..."

It seems ungrammatical! We can only use "how come that...?" to express our surprise, and the tense of "come" is never changed!

Thanks!!!!!
