    Answer: The right answer is: It creates a funny moment.

    Explanation: In this excerpt from Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, Jack/Ernest is replying to Algernon’s request: “Come, old boy, you had much better have the thing out at once.” Algernon wants to find out why Jack is also Ernest, but he is trying to downplay the issue by expressing himself in such humorous way. Jack’s reply is also humorous, thus contributing to the overall sarcastic and funny tone of the conversation.
