    What does Sam write about on "one noisy night"? (p. 134)

      People are exchanging greetings.

    • C.

      A small animal is in Sam's bedroom.

    • D.

      Sam is climbing up the wall.

    Correct Answer
    C. A small animal is in Sam's bedroom.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A small animal is in Sam's bedroom." This answer is inferred from the phrase "one noisy night." The phrase suggests that something unusual or disruptive is happening, and the presence of a small animal in Sam's bedroom would likely cause noise and disturbance. The other options, such as it being light outside or people exchanging greetings, do not align with the idea of a noisy night in Sam's bedroom.

      All of the above (A, B, and C).

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above (A, B, and C).
    Explanation
    All of the given sentences support the main idea that there is no such thing as a "still winter night." The sentence "Many animals are running around in the cold" suggests that there is movement and activity, indicating that the night is not still. The sentence "Tree limbs snap and fall" implies that there is a strong wind or some other force causing the limbs to break, further indicating that the night is not still. Lastly, the sentence "The wind screams" directly states that there is noise and movement in the form of a screaming wind, reinforcing the idea that the night is not still.
