"My friend,
here is the beautiful place—who could mistake it?
Here is Odysseus' hall: no hall like this
See how one chamber grows out of another;
see how the court is tight with wall and coping;
no man at arms could break this gateway down!”

A. Home

B. Family

C. Strength

D. Glory

Answer: A

The excerpt projects the description of Odysseus’ home (hall) by a character. The character gave a beautiful description of the place and how important it was. The character also described the uniqueness of the hall by saying there was no hall like it; that “one chamber grows from another”

Following these descriptions, it was clear that the character was illustrating the importance of a Greek home and the value it upholds.
