    Correct Answer
    B. He lost the farm.
    Explanation
    Henry Hershey is now living in Lancaster with Fanny and Mattie because he lost the farm. This suggests that he had to leave his previous residence, the farm, due to some circumstances or difficulties. As a result, he had to find a new place to live, and he chose to live with his wife and sister-in-law in Lancaster. The fact that he lost the farm implies that he no longer has ownership or control over it, which is why he had to seek an alternative living arrangement.

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "True" is that Milton's father sells picture frames and his art directly to people in their homes. While he may be doing well in this job, it is unlikely that he will make a lot of money from it. This suggests that although he may be successful in his sales, the nature of his business and the direct-to-consumer approach may limit his potential for significant financial success.
