i'm confused between a and B

a symbol is an ordinary thing that has an extraordinary meaning and significance.

so what would it be?

    i guess it would be a.)

    Hope it helps!!! :)

    Explicitly and symbolism are not related.

    Symbolism adds more depth to the meaning.

  • english -

    so b

  • english -

    Yes. B. is the best answer.

    The word "explicit" mean to clearly explain. This is obviously the opposite of "symbolism". A symbol is something, anything, that might represent something else. Symbols are to give an emotional meaning more than an explicit meaning.
