    • A.

      Symbol

    • B.

      Meter

      Theme

    Correct Answer
    D. Theme
    Explanation
    The common thread incorporated throughout a work of literature is the theme. A theme is the central idea or message that the author wants to convey to the reader. It is a recurring or underlying concept that can be found throughout the entire work. Unlike symbols, which are specific objects or images that represent deeper meanings, or meter, which refers to the rhythmic structure of a poem, or motifs, which are recurring elements or symbols in a work, the theme is the overall message or moral of the story that ties everything together.

    C. The Black Cat
    Explanation
    In "The Black Cat," masquerade is not a motif because it does not play a significant role or recurring theme in the story. The story primarily focuses on themes of guilt, madness, and the narrator's descent into violence. Masquerade, on the other hand, refers to a disguise or costume party, which is not present in the plot or symbolism of "The Black Cat."
