Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) Intents and Multiple Activities Adding a Second Activity

Does this code mean that my Main Activity is the hierarchical parent of my Story Activity?

My version of android studio doesn't ask for the hierarchical parent of a new activity when I create it so I had to connect them after I created the new activity and this is to ask if I did it correctly. I was also wondering if I have to connect two activity's after the creation of one through the manifest every time or is there an easier way in the newest version of android studio?

<activity android:name=".StoryActivity">
                android:value="vuorio.miika.interactivestory.MainActivity" />

// The code for the the first question.

The hierarchical parent option is available on some activity types (Basic, Settings) but not others (Empty). The manifest code that should be output by the hierarchical parent option is:

                android:value=".ui.MainActivity" />
