2 Answer

  • C. 
     Because the theme is basically the overall of the story if that makes sense. The theme is kind of like the idea of the story
  • The correct answer is option A. "The message that the author wants to convey". The theme of a story can be defined as the underlying message or the "big idea" that the author wants to convey once the reader had finished reading or watching the story. The belief or idea that the author expresses usually transcendent cultural barriers, particularly for globally known novels.
