Passage B indicates which one of the following?

Answer A

Is answer A incorrect because the narratologists don't directly "point" to Cather's work as an example of narratives, but rather her work could be analyzed through the narratologists' lens?

Hi @caydencemarley,

Thanks for the question! It’s not exactly the “point to” part of the answer choice. So we’re being asked for something that passage B indicates. Remember, for these kinds of questions, we have to find line support for the specific wording that’s mentioned in the answer choice. If one detail is out of place or the answer if half right and half wrong, then we have to throw it out. So now let’s take a look at (A): passage B indicates that narratologists point to Cather’s works as prime examples of pure narrative. Well, does passage B indicate this? Where are we told that her works are a “prime” example? And where are we told anything about “pure” narrative? Nothing is mentioned about either of those, and those single words make this answer choice unsupported by the passage.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
