  • 6. 

    In what form is the past shown as un-escapable. eg. the apple tree is a particulary telling example of this

    Correct Answer
    supernatural
    Explanation
    The past being shown as un-escapable in a supernatural form suggests that there are supernatural forces or entities that are constantly reminding or haunting individuals about their past actions or experiences. These supernatural elements may manifest as ghosts, spirits, or other paranormal phenomena that serve as a constant reminder of one's past and make it impossible to escape or forget. The example of the apple tree being a particularly telling example implies that this supernatural presence is specifically evident in the context of the apple tree, possibly indicating a significant event or memory associated with it.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      The wind

    • C.

      The setting

    Correct Answer
    B. The wind
    Explanation
    The wind is a symbolic indication that the past will return because it represents the cyclical nature of time. Wind is constantly moving and changing direction, much like how the past can resurface and affect the present. Additionally, the wind can carry echoes and whispers from the past, reminding the characters of what has happened before.

    Correct Answer
    C. The noise from the engine of larrys plane
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the noise from the engine of Larry's plane. This is because the question states that Kate's dream gives further meaning to something, and the only option that relates to Kate's dream is the noise from the engine of Larry's plane.

    Correct Answer
    C. Natural

    The word "natural" is the correct answer because it is the only option that can be associated with the inevitability of past events resurfacing.

The absence of any indications linking the game to the shop incident suggests that Keller's humanity is a separate aspect of his character, independent of any wrongdoing or negative actions.
