Read the excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis.” Doodle was frightened of being left. “Don’t go leave me, Brother,” he cried, and he leaned toward the coffin. His hand, trembling, reached out, and when he touched the casket he screamed. A screech owl flapped out of the box into our faces, scaring us and covering us with Paris green. Doodle was paralyzed, so I put him on my shoulder and carried him down the ladder, and even when we were outside in the bright sunshine, he clung to me, crying, “Don’t leave me. Don’t leave me.” What do Doodle’s repeated pleas of “Don’t leave me” foreshadow? Once the narrator returns to school, he leaves Doodle at home and forgets all of his plans to help him. After Doodle refuses to touch the casket, the narrator refuses to help Doodle and leaves him alone in the loft. Later in the story, the narrator races ahead and leaves Doodle to struggle behind during a terrible storm. When Doodle struggles to learn to walk, the narrator leaves and Doodle is left sitting alone in Old Woman Swamp.

Which excerpt from Chapter 3 of The Scarlet Letter is the best evidence that the stranger in the marketplace wants to keep his true identity a secret?

Answers

The best evidence from Chapter 3 excerpt of The Scarlet Letter which approves that the stranger in the marketplace wants to keep his true identity a secret lies in the last sentence of the third paragraph is:  “When he found the eyes of Hester Prynne fastened on his own, and saw that she appeared to recognize him, he slowly and calmly raised his finger, made a gesture with it in the air, and laid it on his lips.” By raising his finger and making a gesture with it in the air, the stranger wants Hester to stay silent.

Read the excerpt from Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.But I didn’t call to him, for he gave a sudden intimation that he was content to be alone—he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way, and, far as I was from him, I could have sworn he was trembling. Involuntarily I glanced seaward—and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock. When I looked once more for Gatsby he had vanished, and I was alone again in the unquiet darkness.Gatsby’s reaching from the darkness toward the light, createsA. fear and loathing.B. sadness and loss.C. sympathy and insight.D. mystery and interest.

Answers

Answer:

D. mystery and interest.

Explanation:

F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" tells the story of a lost American dream and the attempts to get back what was in the past. It also revolves around the theme of loyalty, the sense of belonging and the need to be accepted by the others.

The given passage is from the very first chapter of the text where the narrator Nick Carraway mentions and encounters our protagonist Jay Gatsby for the very first time. He had gone to Daisy and Tom Buchanan's house in East Egg for dinner after which he returned to his place in West Egg. He knows about his neighbor Gatsby but hasn't really met him. So, when he realized that he wasn't alone outside, and saw Gatsby in his own balcony too, he was intrigued yet also finds it mysterious. This literal image of Gatsby emerging from the darkness to the light creates a sense of mystery yet interest in the narrator about his neighbor.

Answer:

The correct answer is B.

Explanation:

The green light that can be seen at the distance represents to Gatsby the presence of the love of his life, Daisy.

His reaching towards the light creates a sense of sadness and loss, as we see Gatsby yearning for a love that was lost long ago and pining for a woman who is married to someone else.
