Within the Chain of Being, which statement would most likely be true? A. Women ranked above men. B. Kings ranked above God. C. Noblemen ranked above merchants. D. Servants ranked above demons.

The correct answer is C. Noblemen ranked above merchants

Explanation:

The Chain of Being refers to a hierarchical system that emerged during the Middle Ages and it linked to Christianity, in this system all the beings and elements in life are organized and classified from a state of non-being to being, in this hierarchy God is on the top and it is followed by the angels, later by the demons, the man, the animal, the pants and finally the minerals. Additionally, to this, in each category there are subdivisions and in the case of the man the system follows the medieval social system in which the king is at the top, and it is followed by the nobility, then by the knights and vassals, then by the merchants, artisans and farmers and at the bottom there are the peasants and the serfs, also, men are considered to be over women. Considering this information, the statement that is true is that "Noblemen ranked above merchants" because as part of the medieval social hierarchy which is the one that determined the way men were organized in the Chain of Being, the Nobles were on the second more important position while the merchants were almost at the bottom of the hierarchy.

In The Raven, to you personally, what does the Raven represent? (this is a personal question that id like YOUR opinion on) I need real opinions for this essay pls make it a long answer...

Some of the reasons that Poe chose this bird instead of a parrot is because it has a melancholy tone, it picks carcasses, it is a sign of ill-omen, and it is black. Black is a reminder of sorrow, darkness, evil, death, lack of insight, and mourning. These are all disturbing attributes of this bird and these show that a raven is not something you would want at your door in the middle of the night. When Poe first started writing this poem, he knew he had to have a bird that could talk, yet was non-sentient, non-thinking, and non-reasoning. So he had the choice of a parrot or a raven. As you can tell from above, the raven is more fitting for his intention.

Lewis This story is written from the perspective of _____. Susan and Lucy the narrator neither the narrator nor Susan and Lucy

Answer:

Perspective or point of view is described as the approach through which the author communicates his emotions or point of view either himself or through the characters of the story. It is quite significant as it determines how the audience would perceive a particular literary text and how would they respond to it.

As per the question, the given story is written from the perspective of 'the narrator' which is reflected by the use of the pronoun 'you' and 'these'.
