The question was a part of the ‘English Comprehension and Composition’ and it included a paragraph titled, ‘The Julie and Mark Scenario’, a story about two siblings making love while staying alone at the cabin.
Furthermore, the students were asked to read the incest story and provide their opinion on the matter as well as include relevant examples in an essay of at least 300 words.
