 3a Questão

The conquest of Britain by the Normans brought some radical changes in the linguistic aspect, rapidly
transforming old English. French becomes the language of official documents and the elite. However, the
language of the church remained Latin. This presence brings new influences and other literary characteristics,
such as those related to Greco-Roman myths and Italian productions. Nevertheless, a literary work that
stands out at that moment has characteristics that are typical of the medieval period, namely: I) the literature
of the time brought characters marked by the code of the cavalry; II) the leader should be just and good;
III) the characters were real. Regarding to the literary perspective, choose the alternative that contemplates
the ONLY TRUE statement.

alternative II and III are true.

alternative III is true.

alternative I is true.

alternative II is true.

 alternative I and II are true.
