Edit this sentence: i like to ate bananananas.
Corrected: I like to eat bananas. - "I" must be capitalized because it is the start of the sentence and a proper noun. - "ate" is the past tense of the word "eat" - the correct spelling is "bananas"
What is the main idea of "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson?
The main idea is that not all traditions should be continued. The tradition of drawing a random person of the town to be stoned to death is not one that the townsfolk are comfortable with anymore, so this tradition is one that the town does not necessarily think should continue. Just because a tradition is in place, does not mean it should always be in place.
