Question 7 is wrong please verify and assist me with the correct answer. I also have othe questions can I post them here as I don't have enough money to ask a new question

Expert:  Chris M. replied 1 year ago.

Hi Zelesi,

I just logged on and saw your reply. My answer to question #7 seemed to be the best choice, but if you are sure it is incorrect, then 'C. The slave who meets an animal who can speak' is probably the expected answer. This is a cautionary tale about the necessity, as a slave, to be careful about what one divulges to the master. Check your text on how this is explained. Unfortunately, site rules mandate that other questions be posted on a new, separate question page. I would appreciate if you could supply a positive rating for these answers so that I am compensated. When you are able to make new question posts, I will be happy to look at those.

Thanks!
