QUESTION 1

  1. Which best describes the main conflict in “The Convict and the Bishop”?

    Valjean struggles to become a good man but his own despair and the prejudices of others make it difficult for him to escape his past and start over.

    The bishop and Valjean are two very different men—one is good and the other is evil. The tension between them sets up the main conflict of the story.

    Valjean cannot find a place to sleep or anything to eat.

QUESTION 2

  1. Once the boys catch the fish, the main conflict seems to be over. Which best describes why the short story “The Strangers That Came to Town” continues long after the main conflict is resolved?

    The narrator needed more time to present the themes after the conflict had been resolved.

    In a story that involves multiple characters, a writer will often include information about what happens after the main conflict is resolved.

    Because this is a short story about a family and not about action or suspense, multiple resolutions are needed to explain what happens to the family.
