3. From Which point of view are the following paragraphs written?
A young woman just moved into an apartment. She thought it was a nice neighbor-hood and became delighted when she heard a saxophone. She could not believe her luck--she, too, played the sax. She bolted down the stairs to find the musician. "What a lvoely song," she said. She knew at once that he would be her partner for life.
a. omniscient point of view
b. first-person point of view
c. third-person limited point of view
d. second-person point of view
Is it A?

It's hard to tell from only one paragraph. The entire story would be needed to be truly accurate.
It could be either C or A, depending on the rest of the story, IMHO!!

I'm inclined to think that that last sentence implies omniscient; a third-person limited narrator could not say what the protagonist knew.
IMHO, of course :-)

Ahhhh, Jim, I think you're right.
