It also mentions that the Hersheys had to move to a little cabin on land owned by Fanny's family. This implies that Fanny's family had some money and were able to provide shelter for the Hersheys. Therefore, if the Hersheys did not have Fanny's family to help them, they would most likely be homeless.

    1. In this passage,  “Fanny turned from the sink with her hands on her hips. “And what is the use of a machine like that?”   Henry gaped at her. “Men have been looking for a self-renewing source of energy for centuries!"  In this conversation, gaped at, most likely means

    • A.

      Looked relaxed

    • B.

      Looked very surprised

    • C.

      Looked angry

    • D.

      Looked happy

    Correct Answer
    B. Looked very surprised
    Explanation
    In this passage, the word "gaped" is used to describe Henry's reaction to Fanny's statement. The word "gaped" implies that Henry looked very surprised, as if his mouth was open in astonishment. This is supported by the fact that Fanny's statement contradicts Henry's belief that men have been searching for a self-renewing source of energy for centuries. Therefore, the correct answer is "Looked very surprised."

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Fanny is very frustrated with her life at the cabin. She says, “Most of our neighbors are getting wood-burning stoves, while I must do all my cooking on this kitchen hearth.”  Wood-burning stoves must be a symbol of poverty during that time. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    During that time, wood-burning stoves were not a symbol of poverty. The frustration expressed by Fanny indicates that she desires a wood-burning stove like her neighbors, which suggests that wood-burning stoves were seen as a desirable and more convenient option for cooking. Therefore, the statement that wood-burning stoves must be a symbol of poverty is false.

      Plan

      Law

    • D.

      Story

    Correct Answer
    A. Dream
    Explanation
    The Underground Railroad was not a physical place, but rather a network of secret routes and safe houses used by enslaved African Americans to escape to free states and Canada. Mary Salisbury's statement suggests that the creation and success of the Underground Railroad required more than just good intentions; it required a dream or vision of freedom and a plan to make it a reality. This aligns with the idea that the Underground Railroad started with a dream, as it was a collective effort to help enslaved individuals find their way to freedom.
