Read the excerpt below, and answer the questions that follow. There was a man of the island of Hawaii, whom I shall call Keawe; for the truth is, he still lives, and his name must be kept secret; but the place of his birth was not far from Honaunau, where the bones of Keawe the Great lie hidden in a cave. This man was poor, brave, and active; he could read and write like a schoolmaster; he was a first-rate mariner besides, sailed for some time in the island steamers, and steered a whaleboat on the Hamakua coast. At length it came in Keawe's mind to have a sight of the great world and foreign cities, and he shipped on a vessel bound to San Francisco. This is a fine town, with a fine harbor, and rich people uncountable; and, in particular, there is one hill which is covered with palaces. Upon this hill Keawe was one day taking a walk with his pocket full of money, viewing the great houses upon either hand with pleasure. "What fine houses there are!" he was thinking, "and how happy must those people be who dwell in them, and take no care for the morrow!" (R. L. Stevenson, "The Bottle Imp") What is the attitude of the author toward Keawe? A indifferent B rather doubtful C very favorable D it is impossible to tell

    hmm... I am not sure. It might be C, since he expounds upon Keawe's abilities, but he never really projects a feeling of favor..... I think it actually might be A, or D. I think this is a question in need of multiple opinions.

    @AthenaWolf okay and what about: Which of the following would be the best thesis statement for a personal essay? A I have a huge family. B Many times during the early morning I go outside to see the numerous animals inhabiting the woods behind my house. C After the loss of my uncle, my aunt's new puppy gave her a focus on daily chores and routine. D Online courses are a great help to me.

    It might be B, that seems to be the best in terms of an actual thesis statement.
