    Correct Answer
    A. Kind and hard working
    Explanation
    The dogs were sold to a man who was kind and hardworking because these traits indicate that he would provide a good and caring environment for the dogs. Being kind suggests that he would treat them with love and compassion, while being hardworking implies that he would have the dedication and commitment to take care of their needs. This combination of qualities would likely ensure that the dogs are well-cared for and have a happy life with their new owner.

The other options are not supported by the given information and do not align with Buck's sentimental thinking about his past.

    Explanation
    The given answer "Saturday in town" is the most appropriate alternative title for the story because it suggests that the story revolves around a specific day and location. The other options do not capture the essence of the story as effectively. "The Last Mail Trip" and "Buck changes owners" are too specific and do not encompass the entire narrative, while "Charles and Buck" focuses on only one aspect of the story. "Saturday in town" is a more general and fitting title that hints at the main setting and theme of the story.

      How things changed when Buck took over.

    • C.

      Charles, Hal, and Mercedes

    • D.

      What happens when dogs are sold.

    Correct Answer
    D. What happens when dogs are sold.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "what happens when dogs are sold." This is because the story focuses on the experiences and challenges faced by dogs when they are sold and taken away from their familiar environment. It explores the impact of such a change on the dogs' lives and the different ways they adapt or struggle in their new circumstances. The story does not primarily revolve around the life of a mail dog, the changes that occur when Buck takes over, or the characters of Charles, Hal, and Mercedes.
