    Explanation

Therefore, it can be inferred that he would not want others, such as his friends or family, to see the list. Hanging it in his tree house, a private and secluded place, would ensure that only he could see it.

This explanation aligns with the information given in the question and provides a logical reason for dad's knowledge of Enemy Pie.

      Spend a day with Jeremy Ross.

    Correct Answer
    C. Spend a day with Jeremy Ross.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Spend a day with Jeremy Ross." This can be inferred from the fact that the father gave his son a job, and out of the three options provided, spending a day with Jeremy Ross seems more like a task or responsibility assigned by the father. Bringing in weeds from the garden or inviting kids to play do not seem like typical jobs a father would give to his son.

    Correct Answer
    C. The best way to lose an enemy is to be a friend.

By being a friend, one can potentially change the enemy's perspective and turn them into a friend as well. This approach promotes peace and understanding rather than perpetuating negativity and conflict.
