Which line from the story foreshadows the trick the niece will play? "'my aunt will be down presently, mr. nuttel,' said a very self-possessed young lady of fifteen; 'in the meantime you must try and put up with me.'" "'her great tragedy happened just three years ago,' said the child; 'that would be since your sister's time.'" '"do you know, sometimes on still, quiet evenings like this, i almost get a creepy feeling that they will all walk in through that window--'" "'then you know practically nothing about my aunt? ' pursued the self-possessed young lady."

In the short story “The Open Window”, the line that foreshadows the trick the niece will play is the following “Then you know practically nothing about my aunt?' pursued the self-possessed young lady." This line shows that first the niece wants to make sure that Mr. Nuttel doesn't know her aunt before playing the trick. Opions 2 and 3 already narrate the “invented” story told by the nice. Option 1 introduces the niece with Mr. Nuttel but still she doesn't know if he had met her aunt before.

Well it has been a while since I have read this but... I do know that Vera provides detailed clues about the men who have gone hunting, and I remember there are others but I forgot.

I really hope this helps.

In the short story "The Open Window", the line that foreshadows the trick that the niece will play is option D, "Then you know practically nothing about my aunt?' pursued the self-possessed young lady". She want's to make sure Mr. Nuttel knows nothing about her aunt to trick him. Options 1 and 3 are parts of the story she invents and option 2 introduces this girl as a character. Once she is sure that Nuttel does not know her aunt she can begin with her mischief.
