    "Notice" is not usually the same as "know" and only sometimes does it mean "see". Notice usually means "take note of," which means that the person "becomes aware" of something.

    1) In that lesson, "Why did you notice him?" means, "What made you take note of him (at that time)?" or maybe, "What about the situation made you remember when it happened (and other details of the situation)?" The noise he created made the person take note of his presence at that time.

    2) The lesson was about two people talking about something that already happened so they use "was" instead of "is" to describe the events.

    Hope this helps.
