    Ear stretching and the accompanying earrings have been a part of African body art for millennia. In recent decades, individuals in western cultures have begun to wear increasingly thicker ear plugs (jewelry designed to stretch the ear). Which statement best describes the different meanings ear stretching holds for western and African cultures? A.) People in African cultures stretch their ears because it looks good; people in western cultures stretch their ears because it is trendy.b.) People in Western cultures stretch their ears for aesthetic reasons, while people in African cultures stretch their earlobes for practical purposes.c.) People in Western cultures stretch their earlobes for aesthetic reasons, while people in African cultures stretch their earlobes as a rite of passage, a spiritual symbol, or sign of status.d.) People in African cultures stretch their ears because it improves hearing, while people in Western cultures stretch their ears for the shock value.
