    Explanation
    An omniscient (third person) narrator is able to enter the minds of multiple characters and provide commentary on their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This means that the narrator has access to the inner thoughts and emotions of different characters and can provide insights into their perspectives and motivations. This narrative technique allows for a broader understanding of the story and the characters involved, as the narrator can provide a more comprehensive view of the events and the characters' experiences.
