Direction: Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow the passage, based on the options to each question. 

Critics of Mark Twain’s novel Huckleberry Finn, view the protagonist’s proclamation “All right, then, I’ll go to hell” in chapter 13 as the Story’s climax Twain’s novel lent itself to such radical interpretations because it was the first major American work to depart from traditional European novelistic structure, thus providing critics with an — unfamiliar framework. The remaining twelve chapters act as a counterpoint, commenting on, if not reversing, the first part in which a morality play receives greater confirmation. Huck’s journey down the Mississippi represents a rite passage, in which the character’s personal notions of right and wrong come to constant conflict with his socially constructed conscience by the various people and Situations the protagonist encounters. The novel’s cyclical structure encourages critics to see the novel’s disparate parts as interlined; the novel begins and ends with the boys playing games. Granted, this need not argue to an authorial awareness of novelistic construction; however, it does facilitate attempts to view the novel as a unified whole. Nevertheless, any .interpretation that seek to unite the last few chapters with remaining book is bound to be tenuous. This is not because such an interpretation is unnecessarily rigid, but because Huckleberry Finn encompasses individual scene of the protagonist’s self-recognition that are difficult to accommodate — in all-encompassing interpretation. In this respect, the protagonist can best be linked to the Greek tragic figure, Oedipus.

21. . The author most probably mentions the novel’s cyclical structure in order to
Demonstrate that Twain was keenly aware of novelistic construction
Show that the remaining twelve chapters have little connection to the rest of the novel
Argue that Twain’s protagonist has much in common with Oedipus
Provide support for a particular critical interpretation of Twain’s work

22. Which of the following best expresses the main idea of the passage?

Twain’s novel contains some chapters that resist easy inclusion into a unified interpretation
Twain’s novel was the first major American novel to discard traditional European structure
The protagonist of Huckleberry Finn is considered a modern-day Oedipus by, critic
The unconventional structure of Huckleberry Finn indicates a lack of authorial awareness

23. By all-encompassing interpretation the critic means

There is same interpretation every time
All interpretations are coming in the future
The interpretation cannot be confined
This is a false interpretation

24. The novel’s

Conventional structure encourages critics to see the novel’s disparate parts as , interlined
Cyclical structure encourages critics to see the novel’s disparate parts as interlined
Stereotypical structure encourages critics to see the novel’s disparate parts as interlined
Adult style structure encourages critics to see the novel’s disparate parts as interlined

25. The novel provides the critic with unfamiliar framework because

it was the radical in type
It was written on about the games
An adult is the protagonist
It was written in America
