    2. what is a theme from the story? Correct if the story has more than one theme.
    3. what is a moral value of the story? Incorrect. We say "the moral of the story", not "moral value".
    4. what is a moral value from the story? Incorrect. Same as 3.

    Thanks
    See above. Remember that you need a capital "W" on "What" at the beginning of each sentence.

    A story can have a moral value as well as a moral.
    In that case, you'd ask, "What is the moral value of this story?"
    Many stories have little moral value.
