    Which description best describes Third-Person Omniscient POV?

    • A.

      The narrator is all-knowing and takes the reader inside the characters’ thoughts, feelings, and motives, as well as shows what the characters say and do. (Uses pronouns he, she, or they)

    • B.

      The narrator takes the reader inside one (or at most very few characters) but neither the reader nor the character(s) has access to the inner lives of any of the other characters in the story. (Uses pronouns he, she, or they)

    • C.

      The narrator does not see into the mind of any character; rather he or she reports the action and dialogue without telling the reader directly what the characters feel and think. (Uses pronouns he, she, or they)

    • D.

      The narrator presents the point of view of only one character’s consciousness, which limits the narrative to what the first-person narrator knows, experiences, infers, or can find out by talking to other characters. (Uses pronoun I)

    Third-Person Omniscient POV is a narrative perspective where the narrator has complete knowledge and insight into the thoughts, feelings, and motives of multiple characters. The narrator not only describes the actions and dialogue of the characters but also provides access to their inner lives. This perspective uses pronouns such as he, she, or they to refer to the characters.

This point of view uses pronouns such as he, she, or they to refer to the characters.

    D. The narrator presents the point of view of only one character’s consciousness, which limits the narrative to what the narrator knows, experiences, infers, or can find out by talking to other characters. (Uses pronoun I)
    Explanation
    The correct answer describes First-Person POV as a narrative perspective where the narrator presents the point of view of only one character's consciousness. This means that the story is limited to what the narrator knows, experiences, infers, or can find out by talking to other characters. The use of the pronoun "I" indicates that the narrator is directly involved in the events and is sharing their personal thoughts and experiences with the reader.

    What describes a static character?

    • A.

      A character that never changes during a story.

    • B.

      A character that changes throughout a story.

    • C.

      A character that clothing sticks to during a story.

    Correct Answer
    A. A character that never changes during a story.
    Explanation
    A static character refers to a character that remains unchanged throughout the story. This means that their personality, beliefs, and behaviors remain consistent from the beginning to the end of the narrative. They do not undergo any significant development or transformation. Unlike dynamic characters who experience growth and change, static characters serve to provide stability and contrast to the evolving events and other characters in the story. They often play supporting roles and serve as a point of reference for the reader to better understand the changes happening around them.

    What describes a dynamic character?

    • A.

      A character that never changes during a story.

    • B.

      A character that changes throughout a story.

    • C.

      A character that is amazing throughout the story.

    Correct Answer
    B. A character that changes throughout a story.
    Explanation
    A dynamic character is a character that undergoes significant changes or development throughout the course of a story. This means that their beliefs, attitudes, or personalities evolve as the narrative progresses. Unlike static characters who remain unchanged, dynamic characters often experience personal growth, learn from their experiences, or overcome challenges, resulting in a transformation that adds depth and complexity to their portrayal. This evolution helps to drive the plot and allows readers to witness the character's journey of self-discovery or transformation.
