Or how were they even associated with each other? Do you even know where to stand once you're being asked if either Rizal retracted from he believes before he got executed? Do you even know how if he and Bracken really got married or not?  The comment was made to tell us that

    I agree to the majority of the viewers that Rizal's subject may be boring especially if the teacher cannot teach the subject with passion. When I was a student, I passed the subject just to complete the requirements. But later on at the age of forty, I enjoyed reading El Filibusterismo and Noli Me Tangere. Maybe now that I am mature, I can easily understand his perspective for the love of Filipino people. I can easily imagine how he described the importance of Ilog Pasig and the beautiful houses along the river. Rizal described that we have a rich tradition, culture, industries, and commerce.   Check the items that apply to the comment made.

      The study of Rizal provides various essential life lessons later in life.
