      Monotheism

    • D.

      Polygenism

    Correct Answer
    B. Monogenism
    Explanation
    Monogenism is the correct answer because it refers to the theological belief that all humans descended from one pair of ancestors, Adam and Eve, as described in the book of Genesis. This belief suggests that all human beings share a common origin and are part of the same human family.

    • D.

      Killing a rat that has been hiding in your closet.

    Correct Answer
    B. Acquired through the sin of Adam and Eve.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Acquired through the sin of Adam and Eve." This answer refers to the concept of original sin in Christianity, which is the belief that all humans inherit a sinful nature due to the disobedience of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. According to this belief, their sin tainted the entire human race, and every individual is born with a sinful nature. This original sin is seen as the root cause of all other sins and separates humans from God. Cheating, killing a rat, and telling lies are all examples of individual sins, but they do not constitute original sin.

In this case, the correct answer is "Antithetic parallelism" because it accurately describes the concept of opposing ideas being presented in parallel structure within a poem.

This technique relies on manipulating the perception of time and can be seen as a form of deception or illusion.
