    Explanation
    Polly wants to work in the house so much because she feels as if she's too good to work with slaves. This suggests that Polly has a sense of superiority and believes that she should not be working alongside slaves. This attitude may stem from her being white, as it was common for white individuals to hold discriminatory views towards slaves during that time period. Additionally, the mention of her being indentured implies that she considers herself to be of a higher social status than the slaves, further fueling her desire to work in the house.

    Rate this question:

  • 15.

    • B.

      A person who needs money so they work for it.

    Correct Answer
    B. A person who has to pay off a debt.
    Explanation
    An indentured slave is a person who has to pay off a debt. This means that they have entered into a contract, known as an indenture, in which they agree to work for a specific period of time in order to repay a debt they owe. This practice was common in colonial America, where individuals would agree to work for a certain number of years in exchange for passage to the New World or other necessities. Unlike regular African slaves who were forcibly captured and enslaved, indentured slaves had a chance to eventually gain their freedom once their debt was repaid.
