Expert Answer:

a) an Albatross bird flew out of the fog. As it is considered to be a holy bird, the ship’s crew welcomed it.


(c) It was so called because the Mariners thought the Providence sent a living creature to them for the company in response to their prayers. They were so glad to find a living creature at the pole where they had not seen any living being or animals for days together. So in their happiness, they called it a Christian soul.


(d) ABCB
