    The answer is C. Metafiction is fiction where the author constantly shows the reader it is fiction. If the story has footnotes showing how they made the story, they are showing that it is completely fake, and they will not use suspension of disbelief. I hope this helps!

    The clearest example of metafiction is story C. A story with footnotes that comment on the author’s process.

    There are many resources that can be employed to make use of metafiction (a narrative technique in which the author constantly reminds the reader that he or she is reading a fictional work), and some of them include:

    • Telling a story within a story
    • Telling a story about a third person who’s reading or writing a book
    • And of course, telling a story and making use of footnotes to comment on it

    In this way the reader is engaged and becomes a participant in the story, forcing himself to think about the nature of the narration and how much credibility exists in the stories he/she reads.
