    Correct Answer
    C. A church service
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a church service." This can be inferred from the fact that the other options, such as "Tom's treasures," "Sunday School," and "Tom's new dog," are unrelated to the chapter's main focus. Therefore, it can be concluded that the author is primarily interested in discussing a church service in this chapter.

    Correct Answer
    D. Couldn't look out the window
    Explanation
    Tom chose to sit next to the aisle because it would prevent him from being able to look out the window. This suggests that Tom may have a tendency to get distracted or lose focus when there are distractions outside, so he intentionally positioned himself in a way that would limit his ability to do so. By not being able to look out the window, Tom can better concentrate on whatever is happening inside the room or auditorium.
