Read the following sentences from “Day of the Butterfly.” “So Myra and Jimmy spent every recess standing in the little back porch between the two sides. Perhaps they watched the baseball games, the tag and skipping and building of leaf houses in the fall and snow forts in the winter; perhaps they did not watch at all. Whevever you happened to look at them their heads were slightly bent, their narrow bodies hunched in, quite still. They had long smooth oval faces, melancholy and discreet - dark, oily shining hair. The little boy's was long, clipped at home, and Myra's was worn in heavy braids coiled on top of her head so that she looked, from a distance, as if she was wearing a turban too big for her. Over their dark eyes, the lids were never fully raised; they had a weary look. But it was more than that. They were like children in a medieval painting, they were like small figures carved of wood, for worship or magic, with faces smooth and aged, and meekly, cryptically uncommunicative.” What is the author's main purpose for including this description of Myra and her brother? (1 point) to highlight the narrator’s pity for them to show that the children live in a state of poverty <----- my choice to emphasize the children’s isolation from the others to suggest that Myra and her brother dislike the others

It could be the answer you choose. It could also be to emphasize the children's isolation from the others.
