Read the passage from "The Lady, or the Tiger.” The more we reflect upon this question, the harder it is to answer. It involves a study of the human heart which leads us through devious mazes of passion, out of which it is difficult to find our way. Think of it, fair reader, not as if the decision of the question depended upon yourself, but upon that hot-blooded, semi-barbaric princess, her soul at a white heat beneath the combined fires of despair and jealousy. She had lost him, but who should have him?

Which phrase from the passage most helps the reader analyze whether the princess chooses the lady or the tiger?

I think it is the tiger and here's why

Explanation:

The princess chooses the tiger. In the text is says,"hot -blooded, semi-barbaric princess, her soul at a white heat beneath the combined fires of despair and jealousy." this shows me that the author doesn't like the lady because he/she described her with very crucial words. also there was no evidence that tiger is worse than the lady.

Explanation:

The answer is really difficult, not because it is, but because the intent of the paragraph is not among your choices.

C is not true. She is not concerned about her father, even though she likely doesn't appreciate his style in this case. What she is concerned about is her lover. What should she do. Should she kill him because he she can't have him who should get him if not her?

I suppose A is your answer, but that is not exactly the problem. Should anyone get him if not her? That's her problem.

Her problem was not his affection. Her problem was what to do. Choose A.

Who should have him?

Explanation:

The excerpt from 'The Lady or the Tiger' by Frank R. Stockton. The author leaves the conclusion on the readers to decide and creates an ambiguous tone. The phrase that describes whether the princess chooses the lady or the tiger is she had lost him "who would have him" and the author leaves the story open-ended to be determined by the readers. The choice resembles a conflict in which the princess was trapped in. Her choice remains unresolved as the Stockton has provided an abrupt ending and leaves it to the readers.
