A good writer makes events in a story occur plausibly. The action should be consistent with the characters; if the author forces them into uncharacteristic behavior in order to advance the plot, the story will seem artificial. In "Thank You, M'am, " by Langston Hughes, are the surprising developments of the plot consistent with the character of Mrs. Jones? Support your answer with evidence from the story
