    How should I answer to "What seems to be the main reason why the drama is so popular?

    Hello, could someone tell me how to answer the below question?

    "What seems to be the main reason why the drama is so popular?"

    If the reason is "its thrilling story line," how would you answer?
    What about the below sentences?

    It seems to be its thrilling story line.
    Its thrilling story line seems to be the main reason.
    Its thrilling story line does.
    Its thrilling story line is.
    Because its story line is thrilling.

    I know there should be many ways to answer a question, but are there any sentences above that you would say or never say?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: How should I answer to "What seems to be the main reason why the drama is so popu

    In the future, please number your examples for easy reference. I have done it for you this time.

    If the reason is "its thrilling story line," how would you answer?
    1. It seems to be its thrilling story line.
    2. Its thrilling story line seems to be the main reason.
    3. Its thrilling story line does.
    4. Its thrilling story line is.
    5. Because its story line is thrilling.

    #1 and #2 are okay, but your question indicates the reason is, not it seems to be.
    #5 might be heard in conversation, but it's not a sentence.
