Which of the following statemnts BEST describes Saadi's message in "Relative"?
a. A thing's value often changes when compared to something else
b. Things are not always what they seem
c. Things created by humans do not compare to things found in nature
d. There are many obstacles on the path of success
Here's an answer.
When trying to determine the theme of a book, you much search for the overall message. On this question, was the overall message that the character highly values or poorly values something until comparing it to something else? That would be #1.
Does the character find out that things change, people deceive, perceptions are faulty? That would be #2.
Does the book focus on the beauty of nature as opposed to industrialism? That would be #3.
Does the book highlight the struggle of the main character, which ultimately leads to accomplishment? That would be #4.
