Answer:

A myth is a story that uses obviously historical events to attempt to explain something.

Explanation:

According to Merriam-Webster, a myth is "a usually traditional story of ostensibly historical events that serves to unfold part of the world view of a people or explain a practice, belief, or natural phenomenon." That's too complicated. To make it simpler, myths are "ostensibly," or obviously, historical, and attempts to explain something. Hope this helps!
