I think the question is wrong because the answer is she was very bossy, greedy and arrogant. The appropriate question is "What was the attitude of stepmother to the Sarah?", I think. Am I right?

Thanks

If I understand the question correctly, the form should be: "What was the attitude of the stepmother to Sarah?"

Very occasionally, we do, and sometimes it's not just the definite article.

A: Sarah is coming to my party on Saturday.
B: Is that the Sarah I met last week when I was with you?
A: Oh, no, that was another Sarah. This Sarah is a girl I went to university with.
