Dear Student, 

B. 1. fan - 'fan' means admirers, but here the word has been used to mean 'blower' or 'cooler' for the sake of humour.
2. pointless - 'pointless' means useless, but here the word means that a broken pencil can not mark a point
3. struck - 'struck' means hit, however, here the word has been used to mean, until one day the idea hit him, or he suddenly understood how lightning worked.
4. right - since he has lost his left hand, so he now has only one hand - the right hand. But the word also suggests, that he is fine now.
5. lost - the word has two meanings, because many patients died and also because patients stopped coming to his clinic.
6. problems - again, two meaning - mathematical problems and also may be some other writing problems
7. hardened - the concrete has solidified him, and also he has become strong

Regards
