    Ugh, I hate when literature teachers evaluate student learning through multiple choice questions. I don't blame you for being confused. I could make a case for both A and C for the first one, and I could say either C or D for the second one.

    Tell your teacher that multiple choice evaluations are a sign of a weak, lazy, and disinterested pedagogy. And you can tell him/her that I said so.
