I'm not asking for answers, I simply can't get my head around on how to answer this question and what the question actually means.I think the best way to answer this question would be typing it up on google docs.
No it's okay, Thank you so much, that was of great helpI'm not familiar with the novel so I can't help much. If that's the thesis, then try to see if there's anything in the novel that directly corresponds to real life cultural practices, or if you can dive deeper if any action implies it. Then see if the scene mocks the cultural practice, therefore challenging it, or in some way stating that the practice actually works or puts it on a positive light. Sorry if that didn't help, I think I'm a year younger than you.
