Cartoon Test B, Q.5

Cartoon Test B, Q.5

Postby penguin7 » Thu Nov 25, 2021 10:57 am

Is B or C the correct answer? I had answered C, which was marked incorrect. The correct answer being indicated as B. However the explanations were a bit ambiguous:
"
(B) This is a correct interpretation of the cartoon. However, the question asks for the message of the cartoon.

(C) provides the point of the cartoon because the dialogue of the adult indicates that she knows smoking accelerates her aging process physically and that the young girl thinks it’s “cool” to smoke like her. Yet, the adult herself is shown to continue smoking.

Question 7

The answer is indeed B. An easier way to think of it is this: Any answer that does not include something about the young person AND the older person is unlikely to be correct. Clearly, the cartoon is presenting 2 people with a generation gap as well as their interaction. Answer choice C is focused on the adult (saying something that is quite logical based on the cartoon) but ignores a very important aspect of the young person being there: The young person is being influenced by the adult's behavior.

We will add the above to the worked solution next week.
