    Explanation
    Point-of-view refers to the perspective from which a story is narrated. It determines the relationship between the narrator and the events and characters in the story. The point-of-view can be first-person, where the narrator is a character in the story, or third-person, where the narrator is an outside observer. This narrative technique influences the reader's understanding of the story and the emotions evoked. Therefore, point-of-view is the correct answer to the question.

    Explanation
    The narrator is the person who tells the story. They are the voice that guides the reader through the events and experiences of the characters.

    Correct Answer
    A. Omniscient
    Explanation
    An omniscient point-of-view story is told in the third person from a "god-like perspective". This means that the narrator has complete knowledge and awareness of everything happening in the story, including the thoughts and feelings of the characters. The narrator is like an all-knowing observer, able to see and understand everything that is happening. This perspective allows the reader to have a comprehensive understanding of the story and its characters, as the narrator has access to information that the characters themselves may not be aware of.

    Explanation
    In first person point-of-view, the story is told from the perspective of the narrator using pronouns such as "I," "me," and "my." This means that the reader experiences the events of the story through the eyes and thoughts of the narrator, and only has access to the information and knowledge that the narrator possesses.

    A. True
    Explanation
    An omniscient story is one where the narrator knows everything about the characters, including their observations, thoughts, and feelings. This means that the story is not limited to the perspective of one character, but rather gives insight into the inner workings of multiple characters. Therefore, the statement "An omniscient story is told from all of the characters observations, thoughts, and feelings" is true.

      The narrator can be giving too much dialogue.

    • B.

      The narrator can be a person in the story.

    • C.

      The narrator can give too much information.

    • D.

      The narrator can be unreliable and biased.

    Correct Answer
    D. The narrator can be unreliable and biased.
    Explanation
    Having only a first person narrative can be a drawback because the narrator may not provide an objective or unbiased account of events. Since the narrator is a character in the story, their perspective may be limited and influenced by their own biases, emotions, or personal agenda. This can lead to a distorted or unreliable portrayal of the events and characters, potentially affecting the reader's understanding and interpretation of the story.

    B. Third person limited
    Explanation
    The given sentence is written from the third person limited point of view. This is because the narrator is using third-person pronouns ("she") and is limited to the thoughts and feelings of only one character (the person who realizes that everyone is looking at her). The narrator does not have access to the thoughts and feelings of other characters, making it third person limited.
