@ulino23,

Let's take a look.

The question says, "The author’s attitude toward the deep rift between
poetry and fiction in the U.S. can be most accurately described as one

Looking at the passage, the first sentence of the third paragraph
strongly reveals what the author's attitude is in this passage. The
author calls it fortunate that the boundaries between fiction and
poetry are being crosse. Based on this, we know that she disapproves

assumptions of American literary culture (and culture generally), (E)
captures her attitude really well. Thus, it's the correct answer
choice.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hello there I have a quick question about the Flex test scoring. When selecting an answer, do I click on the Actual letter or the + circle to the right? How does the computer keep the answers chosen? Where do I find the answers when I finish the online test?
