    Correct Answer
    C. She is well-loved by the people in her village.
    Explanation
    The statement "She is well-loved by the people in her village" is not true because the passage states that Oochigeaskw is scared from her sister's abuse, which implies that she is not well-loved by her own family.

      Her ability to see the Invisible Being.

    Correct Answer
    A. The scars on her face and hands.
    Explanation
    Oochigeaskw's name means "the scars on her face and hands." This suggests that she has visible scars on her face and hands, which may be significant in her culture or personal history. The other options, such as her ability to make her own clothes or her position as the youngest sister, do not directly relate to her name and are therefore not the correct answer. Similarly, her ability to see the Invisible Being is not mentioned in the question and is therefore not the correct answer.

    Correct Answer
    B. Invisible Being’s sister
    Explanation
    In this story, the "fairy godmother" is portrayed by the sister of the Invisible Being. This suggests that the Invisible Being's sister possesses magical abilities or powers that enable her to fulfill the protagonist's wishes and help her in her journey. The sister acts as a guiding and supportive figure, providing assistance and guidance to the protagonist throughout the story.

    Correct Answer
    A. When others do you wrong, do wrong back to them.
    Explanation
    The theme that is not present in the story is "When others do you wrong, do wrong back to them." The story does not promote or endorse the idea of seeking revenge or doing wrong to others as a response to being wronged. Instead, it focuses on themes such as believing in oneself, the triumph of good over evil, and perseverance in the face of adversity.

      Magic

      Metamorphosis

    • C.

      False Parents

    • D.

      #3

    Correct Answer
    C. False Parents
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "False Parents" because the story does not contain any references or themes related to false parents. The other three options, magic, metamorphosis, and #3 (which is not clear from the given context), could potentially be motifs in the story. However, without further information about the story or the specific motifs being referred to, it is difficult to provide a more detailed explanation.

      She was mistreated by her stepmother.

    Correct Answer
    C. She was mistreated by her stepmother.
    Explanation
    The story mentions that Oochigeaskw's father did not like her, which is why she did not receive good clothes. It also states that she was healed after bathing in the water at the end of the story. However, there is no mention of her being mistreated by her stepmother.
