In "The Birds", ((Short story by Daphne du Maurier))what is the weather like during the autumn before the attack, and what does this signify?
a. the cold autumn signifies that nature is frequently harsh and dangerous
b. the cold autumn signifies that nature has been hard on the birds this year
c. the mild autumn signifies that nature can turn dangerous unexpectedly
d. the mild autumn signifies that nature is frequently harmless and gentle
I've only read a summary of this story, but since the weather has just turned cold and nasty, I don't think that b. is the best answer. The birds have enjoyed a mild autumn up to this time.
Ahh! I think I've got it (after puzzling for a few hours).
It must be C. The weather was mild all fall, yet it and the birds suddenly turned violent.
Thank youu :]
