User: Which of the following is the most significant effect of Doyle's use of point of view in the story? A.Watson rather than Holmes narrates the story, allowing the plot to unfold as a mystery. B.The engineer tells the story in third-person omniscient narrative. C.Holmes relates the major plot developments, allowing the reader to keep up with the story. D.The Colonel tells the story, creating an air of suspense for the reader.

Weegy: The answer is A. Watson is Sherlock Holmes's friend, assistant and sometime flatmate, and is the first person narrator of all but four stories in the Sherlock Holmes canon.
