Interpretation of the ________ content of a dream is expected to reveal the ________ content.

A) latent; manifest
B) manifest; latent
C) manifest; sublimated
D) metaphorical; denotative

Answer: BRationale: In Freud’s theory of dream interpretation, the explicit images and story lines of dreams are called the manifest content. This is in contrast to the latent content, which are the unconscious meanings of dreams built on suppressed sexual or aggressive urges. While manifest content is obvious, determining the latent content of a dream requires interpretation.
