How did Jem lose his pants? What did he find when he came back for them? Jem lost his pants because when the trio wanted to leave the Radley’s yard, they had to go under some barbed wire.

What else did Jem and Scout find in the Radley’s tree? Jem and Scout found two soap bars with people engraved into them (Jem and Scout are the people), a full pack of gum, a ball of twine, a spelling bee trophy, and a pocket watch on a chain with a knife attached. There may have been many more items in the tree.
Why would there be no more surprises in the tree? There would be no more surprises in the tree because Mr. Nathan Radley had filled up the knothole with cement.
