what do you think this is asking...

posted by .

For English, I have an assignment that goes along with a story and #4 says: Focus on Kate Chopin's ability to capture the complexity of human nature in a few paragraphs. Provide at least two examples in which the potrayal of Mrs. Mallard is realistic.

I can't decide if they are trying to say focus on Kate Chopin's ability to capture haman nature in a few paragraphs or if they are asking you to write a few paragraphs about her ability. Do you get what I am saying?



The more and more I read the question, I am pretty sure that they want me to write a few paragraphs.

Actually, the selection is pretty short so I am just assuming that they mean that Kate Chopin has the ability to capture the complexity of human nature in a few paragraphs and that I don't have to write any paragraphs, just provide the two examples.

Sorry if this is confusing. It is kind of hard to explain.

You are correct.
