  • Answer:

    Pickering is making sure Higgins has honorable intentions with Liza.

    Explanation:

    George Bernard Shaw's play "Pygmalion" is about a little girl who speaks cockney and wanted to change her life. A chance encounter with Professor Higgins, a phonetics scientist and his friend Colonel Pickering, an expert in Indian dialects led to her newly found aim- to become like a duchess.

    In Act 1, the colonel and professor had met Eliza Doolittle in the market. The professor was making tall claims about being able to transform Eliza into a duchess if only she is taught how to speak and behave. This led to the proposed plan of changing Eliza, with Colonel Pickering promising to cover the expenses if he succeeds. Eliza had gone to Higgin's place in Act II, wanting to change her life. While she had gone to take bath, Colonel Pickering asked Higgins whether he had good intentions about Eliza or not. The professor replied that to him, he hadn't met any woman who deserves to be respectful to. This question by Pickering shows his concern for Eliza's stay with the professor.

  • Answer:

    Pickering is making sure Higgins has honorable intentions with Liza.

    I hope this helps
