Read this passage from the way to rainy mountain: [t]he dog said: "you know, i have puppies. they are young and weak and they have nothing to eat. if you will take care of my puppies, i will show you how to get away" (20). in what way does this passage fit the definition of a myth? a. it teaches a moral lesson. b. it emphasizes the value of youth. c. it focuses on a common fear: starvation. d. it features an animal as a character.
D. It features an animal as a character.
Myths are traditional stories, often about gods, heroes, or creatures of the animal world, that explain why the world is the way it is.
In the excerpt shown above, we see an animal as a character. The dog is talking and asking someone to take care of it puppies. For this reason we can say that this excerpt belongs to a myth.
D is the correct answer
Good things come back around and most myths have morals or hidden messages in them
Hope this helps Good Luck! :)
