Would someone please clarify the following two concerns?
First, as far as the word "genre" is concerned, more specifically "genres of books," "fiction," like poetry, prose, mystery, science fiction..., is already a particular genre.
Answer-choice C, however, states: "What determines whether a work of fiction belongs to a particular genre rather than another?"
Note that C does not ask what determines whether a work of writing belongs to a particular genre rather than another?
Also, C does not ask what determines whether a particular genre belongs to a work of fiction rather than another genre?
C, as I understood it, rather asks to identify the determinants of a particular genre, "work of fiction," as belonging to another genre! Well, it doesn't. Are you, i.e. C, asking me what are the determinants of a "work of fiction"? In other words, are you asking me what re the characteristics of a work of fiction a work of fiction? Because it sounds that you are asking me what are determinants of one genre that makes it not itself but rather another genre!
To me, C is analogous to asking what determines whether a music work of jazz belong to hip hop, rap, rock or country. Well, it's jazz; it's already been determined!
On test day I would pick C because although I don't understand it, I know that all the others are wrong, but then that leads me to my second concern, and it's a BIG ONE: where is the textual support (line numbers) in both passages for C?
In sum, first concern is the word "genre," and the second concern is textual support in each passage for C, please.
Already have an account?
