Which of the following could be considered a theme?
Correct Answer(s) A. Friendship C. Courage
Explanation Friendship and courage can be considered themes because they are broad, recurring ideas that can be explored and developed in various ways. They are universal concepts that can be relevant and relatable to people across different cultures and time periods. Themes often serve as the underlying message or lesson in a story or piece of literature, and they can provide insight into human nature and the human experience. On the other hand, dogs and lunchtime are more specific topics or subjects rather than overarching themes.
