Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: good vs evil
Read the text below and find the five mistakes in it.

The main theme of the novel is the opposition between good and evil. The two main characters, Jekyll and Hyde, are depicted as innovative figures of the good and the evil in man. Their moral condition is evident in their thoughts. So, while Jekyll is a handsome man with white hands, Hyde is pale and dwarfish, and his hands are dark and hairy. Jekyll is well proportioned, but Hyde gives an impression of intelligence. When Hyde wears Jekyll's fine clothes, they look too large for him, because he is smaller than his double. As Hyde becomes increasingly irrelevant in the story, so he gradually grows in stature, suggesting the control he is gaining over his evil twin.
