Solution :-

Here is the solution to question 1 and 2 :-
  1. It can be presumed from the story that Jack belonged to a mixed ethnicity and thus faced segregation at school. Since Jo is growing up and attaining an age when she would likely face such racial discrimination in school, Jack is describing her as a poor kid.
  2.  Tan signifies black or dark colour and ivory signifies white colour. Together they indicate that Jack was neither black nor white and thus, he belonged to a mixed race.Therefore, he felt stifled or caged as he belonged to a mixed race.
