    Excerpt: 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")

    I would chose C too, just use process of elimination to cross out the most unrealistic answers, then pick the top one answer that makes the most sense. @kewlgeek555

    This is also based on the same excerpt: Question 9 (Multiple Choice Worth 10 points) Keawe, we can gather, is all of the following EXCEPT a. brave. b. adventuresome. c. curious. d. worldly. I chose d, because it seems that Keawe doesn't really know the whole world that much. But is that what Worldly mean? When someone if very familiar with the Earth?

    Humm, i would also chose D too. Becuase the way they describe him in the excerpt. Unknowing about the real world, its like he seeing society for the first time. And he does seem earthly from being on the island. Its between C and D for me.
