Which of the following conclusions can be drawn from the passage?

In spite of disparate themes, settings, and characters, two 19th-century American novels, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, have one major similarity. Both stories show the natural world as a place of freedom and honesty. Throughout The Scarlet Letter, Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale are able to hide the truth of their relationship while they remain within the confines of the town of Boston. But, once in the forest, she is able to admit her honest love of him, and he, in turn, is able to do the same to her. This freedom can only occur within the wilds of the forest. Likewise, in Huckleberry Finn, Huck is only able to see the runaway slave, Jim, as a person while on the Mississippi River. As they both escape civilization, they are able to begin building a genuine, honest, and caring relationship; something neither experienced on the shore.

A. Both Huckleberry Finn and The Scarlet Letter are important 19th-century American novels.

B. Hester Prynne and Huckleberry Finn are main characters in 19th-century American novels.

C. In Huckleberry Finn, Jim is running away down the Mississippi River.

D. In both novels, the place where truth can begin to be revealed is in nature.

A

Answer: D. In both novels, the place where truth can begin to be revealed is in nature.

A conclusion is the final thoughts derived after reading or analyzing a text. The aim of a conclusion is often to give summarizing points to the whole context in a write-up. Therefore, determining the correct Answer in the options above would mean we must have to consider the option that best summarizes both novels.

In both novels, the two lovers only confessed their love for each other when they were out in the wild (with nature). Option D correctly states that.
