2 All the years that have passed have not dimmed my memory of that first glorious autumn. The new country lay open before me: there were no fences in those days. Sometimes I followed the sunflower-bordered roads. Fuchs told me that the sunflowers were introduced into that country by the Mormons; that at the time of the persecution, when they left Missouri and struck out into the wilderness to find a place where they could worship God in their own way, the members of the first exploring party, crossing the plains to Utah, scattered sunflower seed as they went. The next summer, when the long trains of wagons came through with all the women and children, they had the sunflower trail to follow. I believe that botanists do not confirm Fuchs's story, but insist that the sunflower was native to those plains. Nevertheless, that legend has stuck in my mind, and sunflower-bordered roads always seem to me the roads to freedom.
In paragraph 2, sunflowers are used to symbolize
C) vacation trips.
D) peace and tranquility.
It is not maths, but the best option here would be A- freedom since they are used here to portray " sunflower-bordered roads", though this could equally be as true for adventure, in the sense that a road will take you to an end destination. Both I would consider correct, though I feel B would be slightly easier to expand on if that is what you need to do.
