DISCUSSION: An autobiography, in Western Culture, is when someone writes about their life. That’s why the passage mentioned those three words: they are the elements of our autobiographies.
The passage tells us that Native Americans think differently about the elements that make up their idea of “autobiography”
- CORRECT. Native Americans don’t have the same autobiographical ideas that Europeans do. That is why the bicultural biographies of Native Americans aren’t enough.
- The passage doesn’t say whether early Native Americans are different from modern Natives.
- If this is right, then what are the old and new meanings of these words? None are given. The meanings didn’t change in English.
- The passage doesn’t talk about how autobiography started.
- Same as D. The passage talks about the root meaning of autobiography, but it doesn’t say how the idea started.
