    I don't know the works cited in questions 2 and 3. You do. You are correct in that D is the best answer for question 1. I might suggest that Walter Mitty's fantasies are also an escape from a hum-drum life, as well as his domineering wife.

    I'll gladly help. For number 2. The different spelling of the Safari sign in "The Sound of Thunder" signifies that they have in some way changed the future by disrupting the past (the butterfly Eckels stepped on and brought with him to the present).
    The answer is D. The travelers have disrupted history.
