"There cat ran into the darkness, and as it ran they chased it farther into the darkness."

In Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken" what do the two roads best represent? a. Life b. Choices c. Roads in the woods d. Getting old
The best choice to this question is b. Choices. Although many people have different interpretations of the poem, the most common consensus is that the roads depict choices in life. On the ACT often times multiple answers will make sense. In this case, life and choices would both be good answers, but choices is the "best" answer because it is the most specific to the poem.
