How does casca father feel about his daughter?Use two details from the story to support your response
I have no idea what story you're reading, but this is a really easy thing to do, so even if you haven't read it, just scan pages looking for interactions between the father and daughter. Figure out what kind of interaction, whether it's friendly or hostile, or doting. Then say "Her father feels ____ about his daughter because of [insert evidence here] in the novel." If it's an essay, the rest of it's just filler but if it's a simple statement then go off that.
To take a stand can mean a lot of things, like supporting your ideas and beliefs. At times, people support and idea or belief to such an extent that they would die just to defend it.

Gerald Graff started his article on Hidden Intellectualism with the example of Warner who had a Pentecostal background but was now a strong atheist. There is a sharp contrast between these two backgrounds because both have very opposing views. But Warner recognized the fact that indeed, his Pentecostal background which was saturated with arguments about beliefs helped him develop his intellectual prowess and ability to question matters.
Sports gave the same advantage to Gerald Graff for he noted that as a child who loved sports more than books, he argued a lot with his mates about certain things they considered unfair in the course of play. These series of arguments during sports was gradually shaping him to develop his ability to question things. From there too, he developed the five abilities listed above.
