Read the excerpt from "Drummer Man." It turned out to be a good thing that I signed on again. It wasn't long into my second year when our regiment fought at the Siege of Corinth. In the heat of the fight we made a desperate charge across a ravine and Captain Williamson was wounded. So the call came in for a quick retreat, but unfortunately the captain was left there between the lines. Somebody had to rescue him, and it was one of two times during the war that I was happy for being small. I took off in a stooping run, unseen by the enemy, and somehow found the strength to drag Williamson back to the stretcher bearers and out of harm's way. Based on the excerpt, how does the narrator's size affect his experiences?

    He was happy for being small sized.

    Explanation:

    The narrator of "Drummer Man" is small sized. Based on the excerpt we can infer that he was not much happy with his small size. It was only one of two times when he liked being small sized.

    His regiment had to retreat from a war front, but their Captain was wounded and left between the lines. Someone had to go there and drag Captain back to safe place. It was not easy for other soldiers to do it owing to their large size. The narrator because of being small in size did the job with not much difficulty. So he was happy for his small size.
