In "It Can't Be Helped," why does Mama destroy her dishes?
a)She does not like the pattern on the dishes, which are chipped anyway.
b)Most of the other dishes have been broken in the move.
c)She doesn't want the dealer to take advantage of her family's misfortune.
d)She is afraid the other residents might steal her dishes if she leaves them in the house.
I think its A?

I've never heard of this story. Is it part of a larger book? Who is the author?

It's in the English 2 textbook and the author is Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston.

Then it's probably a chapter out of her book called Farewell to Manzanar. http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/manzanar/
Consider where Mama was when she broke those dishes. Consider what she and her whole family were being forced to do.
"A" is not correct.

It's been a long time since I read this book, but according to this site, A is not the answer.

Is it C?
