Hi,

Which of the following is correct?

1. what is the theme of the story? Correct if the story only has one theme.
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.
