## Read the excerpts from different sections “The Scarlet Ibis.” Although Doodle learned to crawl, he showed no signs of walking, but he wasn’t idle. He talked so much that we all quit listening to what he said. It was about this time that Daddy built him a go-cart and I had to pull him around. At first I just paraded him up and down the piazza, but then he started crying to be taken out into the yard and it ended up by my having to lug him wherever I went. If I so much as picked up my cap, he’d start crying to go with me and Mama would call from wherever she was, “Take Doodle with you.” *** He’d nod his head, and I’d say, “Well, if you don’t keep trying, you’ll never learn.” Then I’d paint for him a picture of us as old men, white-haired, him with a long white beard and me still pulling him around in the go-cart. This never failed to make him try again. Based on these excerpts, what best describes the symbol of the go-cart within the story? It changes from a symbol of youth to a symbol of old age. It changes from a symbol of success to a symbol of failure. It changes from a symbol of hope to a symbol of desperation. It changes from a symbol of freedom to a symbol of captivity.

## Read the following excerpt from Leslie Marmon Silko’s story “The Man to Send Rain Clouds.” They turned off the highway onto the sandy pueblo road. Not long after they passed the store and post office they saw Father Paul’s car coming toward them. When he recognized their faces he slowed his car and waved for them to stop. The young priest rolled down the car window. “Did you find old Teofilo?” he asked loudly. Leon stopped the truck. “Good morning, Father. We were just out to the sheep camp. Everything is O.K. now.” “Thank God for that. Teofilo is a very old man. You really shouldn’t allow him to stay at the sheep camp alone.” “No, he won’t do that any more now.” What does this dialogue reveal about the priest’s standing within the community? He is a trusted leader of the tribe. He is considered to be an outsider. He is a spiritual guide to the people. He is disliked by most of the people.

Answer: The right answer is the B: He is considered to be an outsider.

Explanation: Leon and his brother-in-law, Ken, had found Teofilo’s corpse under a tree. However, when Father Paul, a Franciscan priest, asked them if they had found him, Leon did not mention that Teofilo had died. He did not openly lie to the priest, but he avoided mentioning Teofilo’s death to him. This shows that Father Paul was not considered part of the tribe, but an outsider that was trying to “impose” his faith and his religious practices on a community that already had its own.

## In the story “To Build a Fire,” what information did the man ignore? Even though the creeks freeze solid, liquid water exists near springs. Always make camp and build a fire while there is still daylight. Always take along survival gear and wear protective clothing. No one must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty degrees below zero.

No one must travel alone in the Klondike after fifty degrees below zero. I would say this is the main lesson to learn about this Jack London story which shows that nature can be cruel and unforgiving and at 50 degrees below zero it is nothing to fool with. If there are two people, one can help the other and warn say of snow which may fall down and douse the fire and also both can have matches to start a fire and they can discuss the best course of action in any situation which presents itself such as trusting the ice not to break over a creek for example.

## Based on the story, what is the narrator’s view of the Prussian soldiers compared to the French civilians and soldiers in the story?

All the French characters in the story express hostility toward the Prussians. Berthine shows this attitude most clearly: “Blind anger rose in her heart against the prisoners; she would have been only too glad to kill them all, and so silence them.” In addition, the soldiers find the potential drowning of the enemies funny and cheer as water is pumped into the cellar. From the French characters’ points of view, the enemy soldiers aren’t human.

In contrast, the narrator shows the Prussians to be more complex than the French characters in the story assume. Unlike the other characters in his story, the Prussian soldiers are shown to be very human, and the portrayal of them is quite sympathetic. For example, the Prussian officer has no reason to keep Berthine and her mother alive after getting into the house, yet he keeps his promise of not harming them: “They had placed their rifles and helmets in a corner and waited for supper, as well behaved as children on a school bench.” The narrator also shows the Prussians as being vulnerable, human, and innocent: “Never mind,” replied the soldier, who seemed a decent sort of fellow. “We won’t do you any harm, but you must give us something to eat. We are nearly dead with hunger and fatigue.”

The characters see the Franco-Prussian conflict in a black and white way, but the narrator shows that the whole issue is complex and describes good and bad on both sides.

## His was the moment Zachary had been waiting for. He had rehearsed his lines for weeks, silently in his head as he biked to school, out loud in the mirror when he was home alone, and, to get used to an audience, in front of his sister’s stuffed animals and a slightly confused dog. Zachary had not prepared well for last year’s audition, and at the last minute had chosen not to go—too embarrassed—or too scared—he did not know which. Now, as he stood backstage, he thought about last year. He had been so disappointed in himself as he walked home alone, snuck to his room, and flopped sadly into his bed. “Next year will be different,” he vowed then and there. “I will be better prepared.” And he was. He just hoped it was enough. His throat was dry, his palms were sweaty, his heart was pounding, but he was ready to face the spotlight. A hushed silence fell across the auditorium as the drama teacher called his name. Zachary Hamilton. Based on the passage, how do you think Zachary will deal with the conflict in the remainder of the story?

The literary elements suggest that Zachary learned from last year and will have more success this time.

Explanation:

this time Zachary learned to come prepared so he could get the part that he wanted so you should always practice for what you want

hope this helps

a. The angle or perspective from which the story is told: point of view

In this part, the conflict between the protagonist and antagonist unravels, things start to work themselves out, the tensions experimented in the previous section start to decrease, the characters may be more relaxed or relief, probably displaying a trait or new insight that they have acquired along the story or might find themselves processing what just happened in the climax.
