When the wolf eventually leaves, she feels very alone. This suggests that Serafina identifies with the wolf's solitary nature and perhaps sees herself as a lone and independent creature, just like the wolf. The mention of a mountain lion, lion cubs, and cat does not align with the feeling of solitude and connection that Serafina experiences with the wolf.

    Explanation
    A dynamic character is a character who undergoes significant changes or development throughout a story. Unlike a static character who remains the same, a dynamic character experiences personal growth, transformations, or shifts in their beliefs, attitudes, or actions. These changes can be influenced by various factors such as events, relationships, or experiences, leading to a more complex and multidimensional portrayal of the character.

      A character whom you can see all sides of

    Correct Answer
    B. A character who stays the same
    Explanation
    A static character is one who remains unchanged throughout the story. They do not undergo any significant transformation or growth in their personality, beliefs, or values. This means that their traits, behaviors, and attitudes remain consistent from the beginning to the end of the story. They may serve as a contrast to the dynamic characters who experience significant development and change. The static character's lack of growth can be intentional, serving a specific purpose in the narrative, or it may simply reflect their role as a supporting character rather than the focus of the story.
