  1. Dear ma’am Tarana,
    First of all, thank you for this wonderful story….. The answer to question no. 1 is-
    The North wind was different from the sun as the North wind was very cold, but the sun shone brightly and was very warm. Answer no. 2 – The character I would choose would be the sun as it taught the North wind a lesson….. I have watched the same and also loved to watch it again.
    Thanks & Regards
