Question 4(Multiple Choice Worth 5 points)

[MC]


The House of the Seven Gables, an excerpt

By Nathaniel Hawthorne


Thus the great house was built. Familiar as it stands in the writer's recollection,—for it has been an object of curiosity with him from boyhood, both as a specimen of the best and stateliest architecture of a longpast epoch, and as the scene of events more full of human interest, perhaps, than those of a gray feudal castle,—familiar as it stands, in its rusty old age, it is therefore only the more difficult to imagine the bright novelty with which it first caught the sunshine.


What does the author suggest is difficult to imagine about the house? 

 Its inhabitants from long ago

 Its long gone occupants and visitors

 The nature of how it has aged

 The way it looked when it was new
