That Sunny didn't “look” like a prostitute is the excuse Holden uses to explain why he did not have sex with her.

C

Holden is taken aback when he notices that Sunny is not wearing makeup.

D

Because he considers the whole situation to be spooky, Holden regrets paying for a prostitute.

E

Holden does not have sex with Sunny because he has a feeling that she is barely older than Phoebe.
