Bernard's Desire

BRAVE-YJZZSB

"What a wonderfully intimate relationship… And what an intensity of feeling it must generate."

From the quote above, what can we infer Bernard wants?

A

Bernard wishes to incorporate the relationship between the two guide indians into the conditioning of the castes.

B

Bernard's true desire is to have a maternal bond like that of the infants with their nurturing mothers.

C

Bernard wants the opportunity to communicate his desire to have a pure, monogamous relationship.

D

Bernard misunderstands the concept of intimacy because his environment doesn't promote love but rather the idea of promiscuity.

E

Bernard's strong desire to have a family is seen in the statement he makes to Lenina; he, unfortunately cannot fathom the sacrifices he would have to make in order to fulfill this wish.
