Solution :-

Framton Nuttel had retired to the country and was visiting different people in order to heal his bad nerves. However, his visit to Mrs Sappleton's house did just the opposite. This visit made him lose his nerves completely. This is the most ironic part of the story. When Mrs Sappleton told him that she was waiting for her husband and her three brothers, who were to arrive anytime, Nuttel felt that she was in delusion. However, ironically, it was he who was in delusion when he mistook the three men as ghosts. WhenNuttel ran away, Mrs Sappleton said that the way he had rushed out wildly, it seemed as if he had seen a ghost. Ironically, he did run away because he thought he had seen ghosts.
