Unaware of what his name represents, he roams the streets with his friends, an army of barefoot boys who appear like the morning birds and disappear at noon. Over the months, I have come to recognise each of them. “Why aren’t you wearing chappals?” I ask one. “My mother did not bring them down from the shelf,” he answers simply. “Even if she did, he will throw them off,” adds another who is wearing shoes that do not match. When I comment on it, he shuffles his feet and says nothing. “I want shoes,” says a third boy who has never owned a pair all his life. Travelling across the country I have seen children walking barefoot, in cities, on village roads. It is not lack of money but a tradition to stay barefoot, is one explanation. (Lost Spring)

The line, "It is not lack of money but a tradition to stay barefoot" can be best classified as:

A. A fact

B. An opinion

C. A theme

D. A plot point

Answer:

The line, "It is not lack of money but a tradition to stay barefoot" can be best classified as B. An opinion

Step-by-step explanation by Teachoo:

  • The line, "It is not lack of money but a tradition to stay barefoot" is not a fact, because it cannot be verified by evidence. There may be other reasons why some children are barefoot, such as poverty, ignorance, or preference.👎
  • The line is not a theme , because it is not a general statement that applies to the whole story or to human life. It is a specific observation that the narrator makes about one aspect of the children's situation.👎
  • The line is not a plot point , because it does not affect the course of the story or the characters' actions. It is just a comment that the narrator makes to explain his/her perspective.👎
  • The line is an opinion , because it is the narrator's personal view or interpretation of why some children are barefoot. It may or may not be true, but it reflects the narrator's attitude and understanding.👍
