A.Village residents gather for a lottery, one family is named the winning family and then one member of the family becomes the winner
B. Tradition vs change
c. quiet life in a small violent village

Thank you

  • English -

    Yes, Tessie Hutchinson is the main character.

    Which do you think best describes the plot?

  • English -

    I think selection "a" about the village residents gather for a lottery, etc:
    Is that correct?

  • English -

    I don't recognize that first name, but yes, Mrs. Hutchinson is the main character.

    This all depends on what your teacher means by "describes the plot."
    A is a good plot summary, but the violence is not indicated.
    B and C are not complete sentences, so it's hard to tell.

    What do YOU think?
