    Correct Answer
    B. Coyotito
    Explanation
    Coyotito is the correct answer because in the story "The Pearl" by John Steinbeck, Coyotito is a baby who sleeps in a box. The box is described as being old and moldy, but it serves as a makeshift crib for Coyotito. This detail is significant because it reflects the poverty and lack of resources that Kino and his family face in their daily lives.

Screaming can serve as a way to express fear, shock, and urgency, alerting others nearby to the situation and potentially seeking help or assistance.
