    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The narrator is part of the action
    C. Uses the pronouns I, me, we
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The narrator is part of the action" and "Uses the pronouns I, me, we". In a first-person point of view, the narrator is typically a character in the story and is directly involved in the events. This perspective allows the narrator to use personal pronouns like "I," "me," and "we" to refer to themselves and other characters. It also gives the narrator the ability to share their own thoughts and feelings, but not necessarily those of other characters.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Second Person Point of View is used to give directions, make requests, and/or give commands. This means that the speaker or writer directly addresses the audience as "you" and tells them what to do or how to do something. In this point of view, the focus is on the audience's actions and involvement, making it suitable for giving instructions or making requests. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Third Person Omniscient means the author is 

    Correct Answer
    all knowing.
    Explanation
    Third Person Omniscient is a narrative point of view where the author has complete knowledge and awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and actions of all the characters in the story. This allows the author to provide a comprehensive and objective view of the events and characters, as they are not limited to only one character's perspective. The author can delve into the minds of multiple characters, providing insights and information that may not be accessible to the individual characters themselves. This narrative technique enables the author to present a broader and more detailed understanding of the story, making them "all knowing."
