Answer b. The situation is tragedic because Jane and Michael were hanging with Mr Wigg the table was still on the floor. They were about to have tea. If table is on the floor and all of them were up in the air then it is completely a tragedy at this situation.

Answer c. I think it comic rather than tragedic. Watching this type of situation is funny in normal scene. Guests are hanging up in the air inside the room and a table remains on the floor. If someone entes at this situation then he will feel fun and he will be unable to stop his laugher. Therefore according to my point of view it is completely comic.
